John Currie will highlight November 7 Song & Story Swap
Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.
Saturday, November 7 , 7:00-9:30 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst, Mass (see map).
The reticent, but gifted John Currie has a passion for a well crafted song, a song that tells a story in three minutes. Accompanying himself on guitar and harmonica, he has been performing at clubs, cafes, fairs and festivals for the last two decades.
A native of Turners Falls and resident of Orange, many of John's songs reflect growing up in the Pioneer Valley, past and present. One of his compositions, The River, earned him first place among more than 60 entries in the Connecticut River Watershed Council's 2008 Songwriting Contest. Returning to the competition this year, he was once again a finalist with his song Seems to Know.
The warm-up theme this month is STUFF
