Words & Music

Sunday Stage 5 12:15 – 1:45pm

So many ways to combine music and words…where does the inspiration come from ?

A great song is certainly a form of alchemy – a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination, with the combination being greater than just the words or music alone. Some songwriters find or create a great story, some have to express their feelings about current events or private experiences through the song form. Others find a good riff or melody first and then go searching for the right words.

In this session we’ll find out how it works for Amistat, Claire Anne Taylor, Dave Gunning & Hussy Hicks.

Host: Paul Petran
