Here’s a heads up about a song-writing series that Creative City Centre is hosting this fall and winter. Behind The Songs functions like a song-writing circle or folk festival workshop where invited musicians speak a bit about their song-writing process and perform a few songs either solo or perhaps with assistance from their fellow musicians on stage.

The first Behind the Songs goes on Saturday Oct. 17. The performers are Brandy Moore, Alex Runions and Mike Evin. Doors at Creative City Centre are at 7:30 p.m., with the show starting at 8 p.m. After the musicians are done there’s an open mike. A season subscription is available for $60, otherwise it’s $20 at the door.

Other Behind the Songs sessions include: Jay Semko, Eileen Laverty and Nick Faye on Nov. 21; Jeffery Straker, TBA and TBA on Jan. 23; and Megan Nash, Grey Gritt and The Stillhouse Poets on Feb. 20.

You can find more information on the CCC website, and here’s Megan Nash performing her song “Deer Head” at CCC as part of the Empty Room series filmed last spring
