Porcupine Hills Songwriters Round-up June 18-22, 2008

I got this letter from my friend Joe Hash and thought I would share it with you. Please remember there are ONLY 15 spots so get in on this fast. If you haven't had a chance to experience the Canadian Rockies, well you just don't know what your missing, ouuuuu, ahhhhh. Talk about clear your mind and the peacefulness it brings.

Hi there.

I wanted to tell you about an event I've helped organize with one of my co-writers, Bruce Michael Miller. If you know anyone who might be interested, I'd appreciate it if you would pass this along.

It's called the Porcupine Hills Songwriters Roundup, a songwriters retreat out near the foothills of the Canadian Rockies in Alberta cattle country, June 18 - 22.

It's going to be small...only about 15 it's designed for maximum face time with some of Nashville's best writers and teachers.

We've got Grammy-winner Don Henry (#1 Where've You Been, Kathy Mattea), Angela Kaset (#1 Something in Red, Lorrie Morgan), and Bruce, who is the adjunct professor of song writing at Nashville State Community College. (Amazing player...he's performed with people like Paul McCartney, Kenny Loggins, and Jim Messina.)

There'll be writing, workshops, wilderness horseback riding, hot tubbing, a campfire guitar pull, and a closing concert with the teachers Saturday night. It's gonna be a hoot.

Also, Canadian songwriters can apply for a $750 grant at factor. ca.

All the details are at

Thanks for spreading the word and helping us get this off the ground.
All best,Joe
