Hello and thank you for visiting Shetland Songwriting Festival website!
I'm delighted to be bringing the very best UK songwriters and tutors to Shetland to share and communicate their knowledge and songcraft with you. This year we have the hugely talented Hannah Read and Rowan Rheingans joining us!
The aim of the festival is to spark ideas in a relaxed, friendly and encouraging environment - allowing you to get the most out of the weekend.
This is a great opportunity to learn, create and develop your songwriting skills.  The workshops will provide you with useful tools which will motivate and inspire your songwriting.
