In an attempt to keep us connected as we continue to find our way through these often stressful times, some in our extended community have been sharing their experiences, lessons learned and hope as they’ve dealt with Covid, lockdown, boredom, lack of inspiration, etc. We are all looking for ways to make lemonade out of the many lemons! This column will continue on a weekly basis and postings will be released at 10 AM Pacific every Monday, so watch for them! For guidelines and submission details, please contact Julie Zipperer at juliez@far-west.org or Marlynn Block at marlynn@far-west.org. Submissions will be posted based on approval from the Lockdown Lemonade Committee.

FAR-West Community: The Woodshed Sessions Presents
“Americana Bridge: Trad Meets the Modern Singer-Songwriter”
Hosted by Susie Glaze
The Woodshed Sessions Presents “Americana Bridge: Trad Meets the Modern Singer-Songwriter” was conceived to showcase how the modern “Americana” song composer utilizes elements of traditional songs, melodies, themes and topics, for modern songwriting, setting up the use of older forms and bringing a contemporary vision to the universal elements of the human condition in music.  Our artists reveal the powerful pull to the older stories in the tunes they write and perform today.
