                    with THE finest songwriters

2020 is going to be a little different. No Govanhill Baths, no Old Fruitmarket... we're going online.


The workshops are open to EVERYONE... That means you! This year's tutors are Kim Richey, Emily Barker,  Boo Hewerdine and one more TBC. Past tutors include Karine Polwart, , Jo MangoCarol Laula, Emma Pollock, Donna Maciocia, Louis (Admiral Fallow) Abbot, Dave "Solareye" Hook and Findlay Napier.


Glasgow songwriting festival is a friendly and collaborative learning environment. We cater to all levels from "I've never written a song before" to  "I've got albums out but I'm looking for inspiration and/or people to collaborate with" and everything in between. 

Workshops focus on songwriting 'tools', useful skills that you can take home to improve or supplement your songwriting. Class sizes are restricted to eight participants. The classes of eight will rotate around the four tutors so everyone participating in the festival gets to work with every tutor.

Your fee includes a free ticket to the opening concert on Friday 30th August. There will be a limited number of tickets available to non-participants so get in quick as this event always sells out.
