taking place online 

19th - 20th September 2020

Hello and thank you for visiting Shetland Songwriting Festival website!
This year we're doing things a little differently and going online! I'm delighted to be bringing the very best UK songwriters and tutors to your living room 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.
The workshops are open to EVERYONE, from complete beginners to experienced songwriters. 
Develop your skills through a series of workshops run by highly experienced tutors, who are among the best songwriters in the UK. The workshops will focus on the tools of songwriting - including song structure, lyrics, melody, meter, song subject, and collaboration.
