A bit about the Workshop/Masterclass Experience:
One of the fascinating things about Roots music – including
Blues, Country and sing-songwriter styles – is the tantalizing
tension between tradition and innovation. This workshop
looks at Songwriting in the Blues Tradition, but can be
applied across a range of styles. We’ll explore the basic
building blocks of songwriting and how these elements can
be applied to write satisfying original songs that also reflect
the classic sensibilities of the blues genre. Whether you
dream of writing your own tunes or have already started,
this session aims to inspire and empower you!
Of course, we can also sneak in as much masterclass guitar
tuition as participants would like. Fiona is an adept instrumentalist who can add guitar tips for those
attending, along with de-mystifying some of her unique cigar box instruments and tunings. We can
also incorporate a ‘song circle’ into the second half of the session, where people can play their new
and/or emerging songs. Please shoot us an email (email@example.com) or indicate your interests
when you buy your ticket and we’ll do our best to tailor the workshop/masterclass to your needs.

internationally acclaimed blues guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. With 8 nominations in the USA
Blues Music Awards for both her acoustic and electric performance, Fiona’s original music draws on
a myriad of traditional blues styles. A finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, Port
