Songs at the Center is proud to sponsor The Columbus Songwriting Workshop again this time around! The event is the brainchild of songwriter Chris Shaw, who, with his brother, Andy, appeared on our show. Their father, Jim, an experienced music educator and a member of their band, contributes his considerable knowledge to the workshop. In addition to Chris, Andy and Jim, the instructors consist of a number of the area’s top professional songwriters, including our host, Eric Gnezda, and touring singer-songwriter Ken Yates of Canada.

“The more I do these workshops,” Chris says, “the more I understand that community is the biggest part. We learn from each other. The instructors learn form the participants, and vice versa. That’s the coolest thing about it – everyone wins!

“Whether you’ve never written a song, or just have some writers block and need to get inspired, this is the place to do it, among peers, in a super-supportive environment.”
