The Songwriter Series is a nonprofit, private concert series created to introduce independent singer-songwriters to an attentive audience, in an intimate setting, explains creator John Cook
One hundred percent of the proceeds from donations and merchandise sales go directly to the artists. “These concerts are a wonderful way to enjoy hearing great musicians and singer-songwriters create superb live music, featuring the full rich sound of acoustic instruments and exceptional vocals,” explains Cook.
“Our shows are mainly focused on the genres of Folk, Americana, Roots music. We have heard all of the featured artists, in traditional listening environments, at the Folk Alliance International and Regional Conferences and at various music festivals across the United States and Canada. We are certain they will present performances that you will not only enjoy, but not soon forget.”
