Shivering Songs Songwriter's Intensive

The Songwriter’s Intensive is a professional development opportunity for up and coming songwriters in New Brunswick.  Through a partnership between Shivering Songs festival and Charlotte Street Arts Centre, we invite a nationally acclaimed songwriter to work collaboratively with a dozen of New Brunswick's emerging singer/songwriters. This year we are pleased to announce that Catherine MacLellan will be our lead songwriter.  Throughout the weekend, artists are immersed in a safe, supportive environment in which they experiment, take risks and learn. They work on singing, chord progressions and more advanced aspects of songwriting such as lyrical integrity, crafting a style, performing, etc. Through working with an experienced, acclaimed songwriter, and in collaboration with fellow musicians, participants have the opportunity to fast-track their skill development and receive real-life advice from someone who was once in their shoes.  The weekend is capped off with a live performance at Charlotte Street Arts Centre featuring the workshop participants.  This event is made possible through The Fredericton Community Foundation.
