Community of Songs

This is a metro Vancouver wide songwriting program that was conceived by The Rogue Folk Club, funded by Metro Vancouver, and led by local singer-songwriter 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 each wrote a song on 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. You can view Michael's video documentary on YouTube here. You can also listen to an mp3 interview about this project with Michael on CiTR's 'Saturday Edge on Folk' here.
