Poets, Troubadours and Troublemakers
For “Poets, Troubadours, and Troublemakers,” songwriter Anne Hills, a Bethlehem native, led bi-weekly songwriting workshops at Godfrey Daniels started in January and featured master classes on a broad diversity of styles from hip-hop to ballads.
The classes included visits by artists including John Gorka, Erin McKeown, Suzzy and Lucy Wainwright Roche, Tish Hinojosa and David Roth. Participants also had workshops with Lehigh Valley artists Alex Radus, Dierdre Van Walters and Jack Murray.
The songwriters — Amanda Penecale, Andrew Dunn, Katherine Rondeau and Rhys Williams — along with Hills and Radus recorded a CD of their original songs that will be sold at the concerts.
“Since I moved to Bethlehem 32 years ago, I have found love and support from our artistic community,” Hills says. “Festival Unbound’s Poets, Troubadours & Troublemakers has offered me another great chance to create, collaborate and celebrate this vibrant community.”
Original songs will be featured in the closing ceremonies of Festival UnBound at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 13 at Payrow Plaza.
