Michael Averill's Community of Songs

This metro Vancouver wide songwriting program, was conceived by The Rogue Folk Club, funded by Metro Vancouver, and led by Michael Averill. Michael has been leading songwriting workshops for the past few months with various community groups as young as 10 years old, up to folks in their 70s. These 8 groups have each written a song with the theme of community. The completed songs were performed at the St. James Hall on Friday, April 5th. A wonderful group of  community focused songwriters and musicians also shared their powerful stories and songs about the topic.
