The Songwriter’s Café 2010

This first year of The Songwriter’s Café online radio show began on a very cold March equinox and ended on a rainy July night with the shooting of The Crooked Fiddle Band’s video by John Humphreys.  The evening was broadcast to an online audience from Quatar to Argentina, US to Germany.  Thank you to everyone who took part, it was a fantastic return for The Songwriter’s Café.

Thank you also to Jan Bowman for your drawing and blog entry for this night.

In this first season different aspects started to come together and it was true as much of the space under the treehouse as it was of the documenting, recording and broadcasting and interacting with online listeners.  We have some of the media from last season here below but please contact us if you have any other bits to add.
