Hey songwriters and song lovers,

Next week there are two cool songwriting events.

Tues June 7 is our monthly Songwriter Workshop at the Putney Library in
Putney VT at 7pm. Bring a song and copies of your typed lyrics to hand
out (very important!). Last month we had 10 people. It's a good event with
thoughtful and constructive feedback. Tell your songwriting buddies.

Wed June 8 is the Just Plain Folks songwriter showcase in Brattleboro,
VT at The Church (corner of Grove and Main across from Bratt Post
office) at 7pm. Very cool space. It will go till about 11pm. Brian
Whitney, the visionary founder of JPF will be hosting and videoing the
event for a documentary. If you haven't met Brian you need to. He is one
of the most important players in the indie music world right now, runs a
great songwriting contest and is a great guy. JPF's motto is "We're all in this together"
and that about sums up the inclusive spirit of the organization. This is a great
networking opportunity for you. Take it.

There are already 25 songwriters signed up to play 2 songs each. There is
still room for more performers.

You will need to sign up for the Just Plain Folks showcase via their
website. Go to the link below (FAQ site), then read or scroll down till
you get to the part where it asks you to fill out the information about
yourself for the showcase. Follow instructions and send it in. No money
is involved although Brian Whitney requests that you make a small
donation or buy a JPF t shirt or hat to support the tour if you can. He
is doing this for free and does an amazing job.

You need to sign up on the JPF site so that Brian Whitney has a roster
of who is performing so he can keep track of the lists for each showcase
(he's doing about 25 nights on this leg of the tour).

All of your questions about the showcase are probably answered in the
