Hey there friends, Hope you had a great summer! I was busy teaching at Manhattan School of Music and that was exhilarating. I also played at a couple of festivals with WOOL&GRANT and heard lots of wonderful music.
I'm excited about my solo show with PAUL SACHS and the CHAPIN SISTERS on October 11 in Ossining.
It's a benefit for Ferry Sloops, a non-profit, environmental sailing organization that inspires people to appreciate and protect one of our country's greatest resources, the magnificent Hudson River
Concert for the River/Shattemuc Yacht Club
Ferry Sloops Concert for the River
Featuring Ina May Wool, Paul Sachs http://www.paulsachs.com,
and the Chapin Sisters www.thechapinsisters.com/

And I'm thrilled to be asked back to the TRIBES HILL www.tribes hill.com songwriting workshop in Hartsdale, NY. That's coming right up on three Sunday afternoons (10/5, 10/12 & 10/19).
In my three sessions of this great series, we'll play mostly with words, so singing or playing an instrument is not necessary. We'll do short bursts of writing from prompts, read to each other, listen to classic songs, and get into the process. Expect inspiration, fun, and skill building too.
The workshop will be great for you if you've never written before and would like to get started, or for a recharge if you're a more experienced writer. If you do have songs in progress and would like some gentle, constructive feedback, bring those.
Feel free to write to me with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org. There's more info at http://www.inamaywool.com/workshops/
To register and for questions about the series, email Steve at email@example.com and write "songwriting" in the header
