The award-winning singer/songwriter/storyteller Jory Nash, and veteran music industry journalist, Larry LeBlanc, will together lead the 11th Mariposa Young Singer/Songwriter Workshop.
The workshop will take place Monday, Nov. 16th, 2015, 7:00-9:00 p.m. at The Brewery Bay’s event room (aka “Down by the Bay”) in downtown Orillia, Ontario (117 Mississaga E, Orillia).
“I’m delighted that Jory has agreed to co-host the upcoming workshop event,” says LeBlanc. “An artist of many hats, he is the quintessential folk minstrel, as well as an important figure in Canada’s music community.”
The Mariposa Young Singer/Songwriters Workshops represent another important step in the Mariposa Folk Foundation’s ongoing commitment to supporting Ontario singer/songwriters.
To date, such leading Canadian singer/songwriters as Jim Cuddy, Murray McLauchlan, Sylvia Tyson, Bruce Good, Amelia Curran, Shirley Eikhard, Liam Titcomb, Jadea Kelly, Ariana Gillis, and Dala have guested.
The workshop series, aimed at reaching singer/songwriters aged 12-25 throughout Ontario, provides participants with an opportunity to meet and interact with professional singer/songwriters and music industry figures, as well as build relationships with other young singer/songwriters.
The event is free.
This event is restricted to participants and guardians. There is no public audience.
Those interested may register early by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or can register at the door the night of the showcase.
