Songwriting workshop
When: TUE 1st OCT at 1pm

Where: HIVE (12a Oxford Street, Harrogate, HG! 1QF. Just a few doors down from Harrogate Theatre)

Join Rufus Beckett of local Harrogate band 'The Paper Waits' for a songwriting workshop based on the themes of the play, Connection. The Paper Waits take their inspiration from bands such as London Grammar, The Civil Wars and Portishead and have developed a deceptively dark and unique sound cased in gentle acoustic melancholia. They are an exciting songwriting partnership who have composed original music for Connection and have had an incredible couple of years with their EP selling out and as record of the week for BBC introducing. This workshop is aimed at all ages and ability. We welcome complete beginners without musical ability and musicians looking for inspiration. This is an inclusive and safe space to create original lyrics. Please bring along a notepad and an instrument- if you play.
