Songwriters from Here and Away

Looking for next live show? Click Here
Late in 2022 my friend, Jim Wombolt, called and asked if I would consider taking on being host/producer of a radio show that fellow songwriter ‘Catahoula Brown’ aka Chris Robert Weagle was retiring from.
Since taking it on I have changed the name to Songwriters From Here And Away.
As the name implies I am focussing on artists and songwriters from this region, Atlantic Canada as well as across Canada and on occasion some from outside of Canada.
There is also a Facebook Page and a private songwriters group which meets regularly via zoom or in person, depending. You are welcome to join in, listen to our meetings and share your songs & thoughts, even if you are not a songwriter. All folks are welcome.

songwriters from here and away - because music matters

I’ve have a few show formats, namely:

  • a standard track show where I play songs, usually as performed by the writer, with my voice over to introduce or talk about the song and songwriter/artist;
  • one-on-one interview style shows either in person or via online audio/video link
  • concert & interview shows where we set up with a live audience and record audio for radio and also video for use online.

This is a great learning opportunity for me and I, along with Jims’ help, hope to see it get some traction and help promote songwriters everywhere.
