It's time for our monthly showcase of original songs and songwriting. This month we have Pat Lamanna and Rob Siegel joining us for an in-the-round show. The showcase includes a songwriting exercise.

Welcome to another Serendipity Songwriter Showcase, featuring original music by talented singer/songwriters. This month we are joined by Jan Seides of Austin, TX, and Chuck Williams from Mattapoisett, MA. The format is in-the-round, with the performers taking turns sharing songs. The third round will be original songs written for the evening, inspired by a prompt from the prior audience. This night, the prompt is, "My Name is George."

Please participate by adding a prompt idea in the comments. Type “Prompt: “ followed by a word or phrase of your choosing. Next month’s songwriters will use that to craft new songs.

Join us once again for the Serendipity Songwriter Showcase, Online Edition. We welcome this month Phil Henry from Rutland, VT and Peter Lehndorff from Hampden, MA. We are your hosts, Dan and Faith from Charlestown, NH.

This showcase includes a songwriting exercise. Each show, the audience members submit a word or phrase as a possible prompt for the next show's songwriters. We select one of the submissions at random, then set our guests (and ourselves) loose to create something new.

We normally host this showcase at Serendipity Cafe in Maynard, Massachusetts. While the cafe is open for take away food, they are not at this time able to host live music events. Please, if you live in the Maynard area, stop by for some wonderful food and beverages and say hello to Laura and Johnny. We miss being there!

August Serendipity Songwriter Showcase will be online! Join us on Wednesday evening.

We host a monthly songwriter showcase at Serendipity Cafe in Maynard, Massachusetts. But the cafe can't have us there for live music, so we're running the showcase online for now.
This month your hosts Dan & Faith welcome John Ferullo and Shanna In A Dress as our guest performers.
This is an in-the-round showcase and each act will present songs in turn. The third round of songs will all be brand new, written to a prompt of "Change," that was selected by our last audience.
During the show, we ask folks to post new song prompt ideas in the chat. We'll collect them over the next few days after the show, and select one of them (either put them on paper in a hat, or do something in the computer that's equivalent) for next month's songwriters.
