The Darebin Songwriters‘ Guild welcomes people with a song in their hearts or a tune in their heads. It‘s an opportunity for songwriters to get together to learn from and encourage each other, to listen and be listened to. It‘s nurturing but unprecious, great for inspiration and networking. Lyricists meet tunesmiths, singers meet writers, guitarists meet pianists… the possibilities are endless.

This is (very) slowly becoming the website of the Darebin Songwriters’ Guild. You can also check out our Facebook page, email us at info@darebinsongwritersguild.org and/or join our mailing list:

Upcoming events

August Session – an afternoon of original music

margaret

Sunday 1 April @ 3:30 pm
BAR 303
303 High Street Northcote
Entry by gold coin donation

In the deep dark depths of winter, a little beacon of hope shines bright: a humble pocket of light and warmth in the back room of Bar 303 where you can imbibe a delicious beverage or three while soaking yourself in an extravagance of great music from remarkable songwriters and performers who come from far and wide to sing awesome truths and tall stories and cutting social satire and that's just the beginning! Yes that's the hyperbolic blurb for the next Darebin Songwriters' Guild session.

This time, we’ll be hearing from:

August Songwriting Workshop

Monday 13 August @ 7:30 pm
Rose Shamrock Hotel
709 Plenty Rd, Reservoir

Stuck on a song? Not sure if it’s working? Crowdsource it! At our songwriting workshops, participants take turns playing a song to each other and get feedback, comments, suggestions, etc. It’s great for improving your songs and learning to think about them in different ways.

If you want to come, please RSVP by Friday 8 June to: workshops@darebinsongwritersguild.org. (Numbers are limited: we only have time to work on eight or nine songs, so the ninth or subsequent RSVPer may miss out on sharing their own song.)
