Inde-folk quartet plus a clear-eyed, clear-voiced singer/songwriter


Darlingside
“Darlingside‘s … lineage includes California pop harmonies, Appalachian root riffs, and classical arrangements all shadowing that full-on American mongrel we call rock music”  – New Hampshire Public Radio
With four distinct voices clustered around a single microphone, their tightly-arranged tunes draw from the unexpected, featuring strains of bluegrass, classical, and barbershop. Accompanied by an arsenal of classical strings, guitars, mandolin, and percussion, these four close friends keep audiences on the edge of their seats. See them!


Caitlin Canty
“Caitlin Canty’s lyrical insight is razor sharp. The imagery in her songs is so rich that you can smell the diesel fuel, feel the rain on your cheeks, and see the sun reflecting off the snow.  (She) draws you in with beautiful simplicity.”  – C-Ville
Raised in Vermont and now based in NYC, singer/songwriter Caitlin Canty contributes her pure, nuanced singing to several bands in addition to maintaining an active tour schedule of her own. Canty released her sophomore album Golden Hour on October 2, 2012. The fan-funded album blends Canty’s folk roots with a Western tone, and her Brooklyn-based, Nashville-bred band brings an alt-country flavor to her songs. See her!

URBAN H20 is a new performance venue in downtown Yonkers presenting the Hudson Valley's best local and regional artists.

SHOWS are the third Saturday of every month at Beczak, an eco-friendly renovation of a former factory social club along the Hudson River in downtown Yonkers. Steps from Yonkers Amtrak and Metro-North station. Ample free parking.

Tribes Hill Songwriting Workshops

Tribes Hill Songwriting Workshops

Songwriting Workshops
Presented by
The Tribes Hill Music Community
 
Have you ever wanted to write songs or improve your songwriting ability?

Tribes Hill is proud to announce its first Songwriting Workshops for the New York metro and lower Hudson Valley areas.  We are offering a Songwriting Workshop Series as well as preparatory classes.
 
The Songwriting Workshop Series

If you already have some basic song-playing skills this series is an opportunity to:
·        Build confidence to express yourself in a supportive environment  
·        Develop songcraft and explore lyric voices
·        Access places inside where songs come from  

The series will run for 8 sessions (usually but not always weekly) followed by a performance for family and friends. Seven sessions will feature guest artists. We’ve added a concluding session with the series facilitator to consolidate gains.
Series locations: a private home in Hartsdale and ArtsWestchester in White Plains.
Times and Dates: Sundays, 3 to 5:30 PM, from March 23 to late May.  

About the guest artists:
Each of our guest teaching artists is a professional songwriter with years of experience.  We're honored to have the following songwriters for this series:
 
3/23: Matt Turk                 www.turktunes.com
3/30: Elaine Romanelli      www.elaineromanelli.com
4/06: James Durst              www.jamesdurst.com

(Teaching order and artists are subject to change).
 
Workshop facilitator:  
Stephen Scholle. Steve is a psychologist, teacher and songwriter, with a love of "creative workshopping".  He has developed workshops for the Focusing Institute, The Empowerment Center and other groups devoted to personal growth, and has taught music to kids with UpBeatNYC. His songs are at www.stephenscholle.bandcamp.com


Preparatory Classes:
We will also offer preparatory classes, a music 101, for those who want to learn beginning song theory with keyboard and/or guitar. These classes will run prior to and during the early weeks of the Songwriting Series. They will run according to need.  Cost is separate.  For more information on this series of classes email Steve at ideaseeds@gmail.com  

FAQs:  
Do I need to know how to play an instrument?
No, but we'll recommend you start with the Preparatory Classes to get some basic chord progressions under your fingers.
 
Do I need to know how to sing on pitch?
No, but we can help you with that. That way you'll be able to express your musical ideas better.
 
What if I can only make part of the series?
We will have a limit on class size, so you will be responsible for the series fees.  We can discuss special situations.
 
Class size?
10 maximum, in order to give each participant attention.

Age limits?
High school and up

Cost?
$250 for 8 sessions and a concluding performance.
