Hill Country Song Workshops For 2013--Including Down Under!
The Kevin Welch Songwriting Workshop is a four-day retreat that will inspire and support you in your creative, musical efforts.
LEARN . . . everything from vital lyric devices, melody, delivery, lyric structure and rhythm, to performance techniques, Nashville shorthand, and the difference between performance royalties and publishing royalties.
CREATE . . . if you are a seasoned professional or an amateur musician, come listen to your creative side. Anything goes with us, and we love it when we get musicians in all stages of development.
REJUVENATE . . . turn off your cell phone, look at the stars, connect with other musicians and enjoy our soulfully-prepared food. The weekend is about you.
Come join us in the beautiful Texas hill country, just an hour south of Austin. We'll show you a weekend of writing, playing, listening and re-writing. We love what we do so much, that we can guarantee you will walk away feeling newly inspired in the art of songwriting. Plus you'll have a whole new set of amazing new friends with whom you can collaborate on future writing. We've hosted over 100 writers of all ages and stages, and they continue to come back again and again!
You'll have the opportunity to practice what you've learned throughout the workshop... on Sunday afternoon at our outdoor concert by the Blanco river. For those of you not wishing to perform, you can attend as a Non-performing Student, participate in all of the writing sessions, and just enjoy the Sunday afternoon music. We're bringing in some local musicians who will sing a few songs as well.

We've made couple of little videos about the workshops:
One of the songwriters at our first workshop in August, 2010, made a video montage about his experience. It captures what we're doing with these workshops: work and fun, food and friends.
