Northern Vermont Songwriters is a new organization for songwriters to share knowledge and maximize creativity. Membership and meetings are free. We meet at 6:45 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month in the cabaret room at Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury. Songwriters from Vermont, New Hampshire and anywhere else are invited to attend, and all genres of music are welcome. Songwriters may bring a song to share. The song may be performed live for the group, or a recording may be played (an iPhone dock will be available). Songwriters are encouraged to bring 6 copies of lyrics to share with the group. They may also bring lyrics only, or choose to simply listen and comment on the songs of others. Members might be invited to participate in public performances, including a Songwriter Round at Catamount Arts and at First Night. Another exciting benefit is occasional workshops hosted by music industry professionals, designed to help songwriters improve their craft. Please join us for our next meeting. Any questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org; or phone: (802) 467-9859.

Stop by Catamount Arts during St. Johnsbury's Victorian Holiday celebration and create your own dangling cube out of heavy paper, ribbon, rhinestones and other decorative elements. There's even a secret place for a tiny gift. This fun project makes a great ornament, but also can be hung in any spot that could use some glam.
Children under 8 years old should be accompanied by an older family member.
