The 1st Songwriters Winter Retreat .... happened!!


Oh yeah. A great writing/creative workshop (sold out) for all levels of writers willing to work hard and work thru songs. Some re-wrote and came back into workshop with masterpieces .. gotta love it. Thank you Michael and Don for putting in the overtime....

Don Henry and Michael Johnson were the mentors PLUS provided a sold out concert at the SONGBIRD CAFE in Custer.

It just may happen again next year .. we'll keep ya posted.

We will give you email's of past participants upon request --- they can tell more about the Songwriters Gallery.

"It was a pleasure and an honor to be around such attentive writers. I feel like I had more to learn than I had to give."

Michael Johnson

"The Songwriters Gallery winter retreat was fantastic.
To be in such secluded surroundings just soaking up life without a traffic jam in sight... what an escape! Just deer and snow and crystal clear air...and that early morning moon! Oh yeah, and songs, songs, songs! As hard as I worked while I was there, it never felt like work until I hit the bed at night and slept like a baby. A song-fed baby! Thanks to David Lee Brown and crew for inviting me to participate and hang out with folks who just can't help but write songs. Believe me, I understand! Lover of songs and songwriters,"

Don Henry
