ArtCentral Spearfish hosts a series of community discussions with local songwriters, every Monday, 6-7:30 p.m., Mar. through May. All discussions take place at the Good Day Cafe, located at 541 W. Jackson Blvd. in Spearfish. These events are free and open to the public.
Meet and learn from local musicians/songwriters
Local musicians and songwriters invite the public to have conversations about contemporary issues that influence their music. Songwriters will present several songs talking about the inspiration, meaning, and their hopes for what the songs may spark in their audience. Each session will have a host to moderate, ask questions of the songwriter, and engage the audience in discussion.
“We are hoping these will be spirited and respectful conversations that build understanding and thoughtful reflection about the role of music and songwriting in addressing community issues,” opportunities director, Sian Young. “Having the Spearfish Songbook series take place at the Good Day Cafe, one of Spearfish’s newest businesses, allows for a comfortable, intimate setting. This should help spark engaging conversations.”
Songwriters scheduled are reflective of our area and inclusive across music genres, cultural influences, demographic diversity, and artistic point of view. These free events are scheduled every Monday evening, from 6-7:30 p.m., starting Mar. 4 and concludes on May 27.
