Songwriting 4 Nature
Local singer-songwriters extraordinaire, Glenn Sutter, Kara Golemba and Ryan Hicks coordinated an excellent Songwriting 4 Nature experience at Last Mountain Regional Park (LMRP) in Saskatchewan a few weeks back. It was wonderful to be surrounded by nature, to be surrounded by music, to be surrounded by so many talented songwriters.

Listening to other artists lyrics and words without preparing any response cemented my attention the present. No comment, no encouragement, no judgement. And did I learn!
