CALL FOR APPLICANTS: 2015 CSAC Emerging Artist Songwriting Intensive + Showcase with THE SKYDIGGERS!

The CSAC invites applications for participation in the 2015 CSAC Emerging Artist Songwriting Intensive and Showcase. The Songwriting Intensive is offered in partnership with Shivering Songs, sponsored by UP! 93.1FM, and will take place January 24th & 25th, 2015, with a showcase on the evening of the 25th.

Hosted by the primary writing team of the acclaimed Toronto folk rock group The Skydiggers, songwriters Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson will host this two-day intensive songwriting workshop offering insight into the creative process of songwriting. Students will enhance their writing skills and develop ideas, while creating and editing their own songs in a group setting. This course caters to emerging songwriters who are interested in mentorship from an accomplished artist. The ability to accompany oneself on an instrument (i.e. basic chording skills on piano or guitar) is required, and bringing a work-in-progress to develop throughout the workshop would be ideal. Students will be encouraged to give feedback to their peers, and will participate in a public presentation at the end of the program.

All events will take place in the CSAC Auditorium, 732 Charlotte Street, Fredericton.

>>> Application process opens December 1, 2014 and deadline to apply is JANUARY 1, 2015 by midnight. <<<

Twelve musicians will be selected from the applications received and will be offered the opportunity to take the workshop free of charge.

Entry Requirements:
Must be 16+ years of age
Must be a New Brunswick resident
Must be an 'emerging' musician -- You may have achieved some local or provincial success, and may have released self- or locally produced albums, but have yet to take that next big leap
Must be able to accompany oneself on an instrument
Must have one 'work-in-progress' piece of music to work on during the workshop
Must be able to attend all activities, including the final performance
