Nizlopi Song Writing Workshop This November

Hi Friends,

John (The other half of Nizlopi) and I are interested in hosting a songwriting residential near Stratford Upon Avon in Warwickshire this winter at this beautiful rural idyl:


Beginners and pros would be welcome. We want to host a really excellent weekend of learning, sharing, and inspiring. Giving the participants as much of the benefit of our 20 years of songwriting experience as we can.  We want to share with you all the elements of this art that we can: the practical, the musical, the technical, the spiritual, the traditional and the modern. Along with hanging out and hearing your songs and questions, and all learning from each other. We would all so play a gig for you all on the Saturday night, perhaps in a local pub where we could then have a singing session together.

When: The weekend of 29th Nov to 1st December 2013

Where: Talton Lodge, Newbold-on-Stour, Stratford-Upon-Avon, CV37 8UB. Link above

What: A weekend song writing with Nizlopi, Full lovely rural board and lodgings, and a Nizlopi gig thrown in on the Saturday night. We will have a maximum of 24 places for participants.

How Much: Early bird prices starting at £250 (There are different options of Twin, single, rooms etc) if you book before the 28th October.

PLEASE can you get back to us and encourage us to do this so we can get the ball rolling!? AND PLEASE PASS IT ON to any one who needs some good inspiration with their writing/singing/life.
