LEON ROSSELSON SONGWRITING WORKSHOP

        Leon has been at the forefront of songwriting in Britain for over 50 years. He started writing songs seriously (and humorously) in the early 1960s and hasn't stopped yet. His early songs were topical-satirical (several were featured in the TV satirical show That Was The Week That Was) but he broadened out from there, absorbing different influences from Music Hall to French Realist song, and experimenting with different song forms. His songs range from the lyrical to the satirical, from the personal to the political, from the humorous to the poignant. He has written songs for children, songs for community shows, songs for Interaction's Fun Art Bus and songs for a stage production of They Shoot Horses, Don't They? His most famous song is The World Turned Upside Down which has become an anthem for protest movements in the States and Australia as well as in this country.

        The workshop will cover the best approach to writing a song, the most effective and singable song language, song form and technique and the contribution that music makes in bringing a song to life.

Pity I don't live near Lewes, I would certainly benefit from something like this.
