The group songwriting workshop is an opportunity to literally raise our voices and create a song that powerfully expresses our feelings and ideas. When we tell our story honestly, we create an opportunity for those around us to grow, heal and find connection. When we raise our voices together, we put a powerful message into the world that can help us create real positive change. As a group we will share our struggles and our hopes and choose a theme we’d like to shine a light on. Together, we will create and perform a song that shares that message. Each participant will leave with a recording of the new song that she helped bring into the world.

Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This most famous of all classic love stories was originally set in Celtic antiquity, and an important component of the Arthurian legends. In the 12th century, the tale was already 600 years old when it captured the imagination of Medieval France’s famous storyteller-poet-musicians, the troubadours. The powerful story continued its long journey through the ages... inspiring many works in turn, including Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet). Bells & Motley present a telling that is authentic, yet lively, accessible, highly charged, and mysterious - full of all of the original symbolism, intrigue, and purpose. In ancient bardic style, it features a simple setting, rich language, and complex emotions evoked through the power of music. Rare historic instruments include the Medieval keyed fiddle, low-voiced recorders, ancient gut-strung bray harp, and Celtic harp. Musical selections include the same historic pieces that were part of Medieval tellings, as inspired by this enduring tale.
