Ryedale Songwriters Circle

We have been running a Songwriters Circle in Pickering now for about 6 years. It was originally set up under the 'Ryedale Live' umbrella and has been continually meeting each month since that time. We began meeting in The Bay Horse in Pickering but now we meet in members' houses on the 1st Monday of every month. 

There is a fantastic music scene in and around Pickering with a lot of talented singer/songwriters. There is a huge range of styles of music too. Most of us see ourselves as folk or at least acoustic musicians and there is at least one of us singing unaccompanied songs. Many songwriters have come and gone and we now have a solid membership of around 10 people. 

The Circle provides a friendly, cosy, environment where beginner and experienced songwriters alike can 'try out' new songs in an encouraging atmosphere. We discuss new songs and songwriting methods. Members can discuss the stories behind their new songs as well as how they wrote them. We discuss guitar chords and techniques as well as discussing tips regarding performance. 

You can find out more about the Ryedale Songwriters Circle on our Facebook Page.
