This is always a very special evening: the participants of the SongStudio workshop are selected to perform their songs, often for the first time ever, with a stellar band, led by guitarist Rik Emmett. Blair will co-host the evening and sing a few songs himself, but mostly about the students, whose creations are consistently marvelous. It's a reliably magical and inspiring night of new music, and it's open to the public and free!
