Hey everyone, so sorry that we've forgotten to be posting here about hosting the weekly songwriter's round in East Nashville. FB took over there for a while, but we'll make sure to be more up to date also here from now on. It's been going for about a year and a half already and we've been happy to have invited local talented friends and favourites, such as Dana Cooper, Jon Ims, Laurie McClain, Buddy Mondlock, Mary Bragg, Whit Hill, Mike Williams and so many more.
To avoid confusion for those who've seen the posters around on Facebook, this week's line-up is actually the same as last week. Sam Tate couldn't make it last Saturday, so the wonderful Sarah Aili and Jon Ims filled in last minute, but we're delighted that Sam will join us this week together with Cindy Greene for another relaxed song swap in front of the old fireplace - thankfully not lit ;0) but the wonderful songs and banter will surely warm heart.

There's great food and coffees, and we all just kinda hang awhile around our communal table after the show.
Love to see you!
