Guitarist teaches songwriting

Program wraps up with concert at The Haven

A renowned blues guitarist returns to The Haven on Gabriola with a four-day workshop, thanks to popular request.

Eric Bibb’s previous one-day songwriting workshop led to requests for more time with the singer and songwriter from workshop participants.

Musicians have the opportunity to work with Bibb and his songwriting partner Sari Martinlassi next week (Sept. 4-8) at The Haven.

“The feeling that accompanies the birth of an inspired song is uniquely exhilarating – and the journey that takes you there is mysterious and magical,” Bibb said. “I wish to share my experience of this journey.”

Coinciding with the workshop is the release of Bibb’s latest album, The Haven, recorded at its namesake with Gabriola’s award-winning sound engineer Graemme Brown. To celebrate, Bibb performs at the Wong and McKeen Phoenix Auditorium Wednesday (Sept. 7) at 7 p.m.

To register for the four-night workshop, please call 1-877-247-9238, ext. 1, or e-mail register@haven.ca. Tickets for the concert are $22 by calling 1-877-247-9238, ext. 0, or by e-mail to info@haven.ca.
