Background on Songwriting Circle
The Songwriting Circle at MAC Birmingham is a place for songwriters to share ideas, skills and experiences. They focus on the craft and cathartic benefits of the art of songwriting as opposed to any commercial interests. A hideaway from the commercial world; this is an environment in which to be inspired, receive feedback and feel the benefit of a support network of like minded folks.
Songwriter Dan Whitehouse (www.dan-whitehouse.com)was inspired to set up the writing group after Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) invited him to take part in a songwriting retreat in Kent in 2008.
In 2012 The Songwriting Circle recorded an album ‘Birmingham Blues’ – a collection of songs written and recorded in Birmingham by Brummies, and featuring tracks inspired by the city’s streets, parks and waterways.
