Did you ever wonder how musicians learn their craft or what inspires their songs? Altamont Free Library hosts a monthly concert series on the first Friday of each month that tries to answer those questions. We call it the SongTeller Sessions.
In these concerts, each local performer will receive the same list of ten questions that they’ll answer through stories and songs so that we can get an idea of their personal and creative journey.
*What is a song your parents loved?
*What was the first album you bought with your own money?
*What was the first song you learned to play?
*What’s the first bad song you wrote?
*What’s the first good song you wrote?
*If you could have written any song, what would it be?
*What song do you love that other people seem to dislike?
*What’s a traditional/folk/children’s/church song that you like?
*What’s a song that reminds you of home?
*What song of yours would you like to be remembered by?
