Immerse yourself in the art of songwriting with this special workshop led by the award-winning Canadian songstress Oh Susanna! This workshop is a chance for experienced musicians or first timers to start some song ideas. Bring an instrument or just your voice!

Her superbly crafted songs often tell stories of troubled souls who rebel against their circumstances to attain a quiet dignity. These are tales of longing and love, of small town joys and pains, of our simple feelings and strong passions. These are tales that look into our beautifully flawed human hearts. 

Performing since 1996, Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed albums.  She is the recipient of a Genie Award for Best Original Song and a Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year.  She has also been nominated for two Juno Awards each for Best Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, as well as two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Solo Performer and for Best Contemporary Singer of the Year.  In 2017, she released A Girl in Teen City, an album of songs set in 1980s Vancouver starring a teenage punk girl named Suzie.  The album has been met with high critical acclaim and has earned three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations: English Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary Singer of the Year, and Producer of the Year.
