...just may be my favorite performance format. And listening format, too, now that I think about it. The combination (and contrast) of personalities, playing styles, voices, deliveries and subject matter is captivating to me. And I also love the interaction between the artists - the banter. This format humanizes the performers in a way that a solo show can never do.
Long a staple in the Nashville Country community, songwriter rounds (as they're colloquially called) are fast becoming the go to show for smaller venues. It's great for artists, too, because one "in the round" show can feature three or four performers, resulting in broader exposure and the potential for cross-pollination of fans.
Check one out, sometime. There's a good chance you'll be introduced to some songwriter you'll love!
We here at the House Of Strays wish you a pleasant week. Be kind to each other out there - we're all we've got.
Here's the title song from my second CD Up We Go. I hope you enjoy it.
