24th March

Song writing

The Old Mill Centre will be holding its first ever Songwriting Workshop this Saturday 29th March.  Open to both experienced songwriters and complete beginners, it's still not too late to book your place.

Experienced singer-songwriter and teacher Kirsti-Anna Hume will encourage you to look to your own life for finding inspiration and new starting points for creative work.  This will be a very ‘hands-on’ day, the aim being that you will have something uniquely special to take away with you by the end of the day.
“This workshop is not about how to write a number one hit, but about looking at your own life experience and writing about what is important and meaningful to you.” says Kirsti.

No experience of writing songs is necessary and musical knowledge is helpful but not essential.  If you are an experienced musician, please bring your own instrument, whatever that may be: keyboard, guitar or a melody instrument of some kind or other.  The centre’s owner and musical director Barbara Sutcliffe-Cole will be fully involved with the workshop, especially there to help you with putting your lyrics to music.
The workshop runs from 10.30am – 3.00pm and costs £20.  Refreshments will be provided but please bring your own packed lunch.  For more information or to book your place call Kirsti-Anna Hume on 01325 718602 or visit www.oldmillcentre.co.uk

Kirsti-Anna's beautiful song 'Lover’ has reached the semi-final of the Song of the Year competition.  This is a high profile international contest judged by industry professionals such as Phil Collins and Gwen Steffani.  She is now being played regularly on the BBC Introducing programme with Bob Fischer on BBC Radio Teeside.
