"Folk Music As Fiction," workshop with live music, discussion.
Godfrey Daniels music club
7 E. 4th Street Bethlehem, PA.
In his award-winning novel, Revival, writer-musician Scott Alarik created a vivid portrait of the modern folk world, which he calls “the most musical thing I’ve ever done.” With a mix of songs and stories, he shares the challenge of turning music into prose, exploring the meaning of tradition in the 21st century, the intimate process of songwriting, the grueling work of recording an album, and the mystical ways music moves us.
Scott's unique, lively fusions of music, storytelling, and discussion have been presented by the Library of Congress, Peabody Essex Museum, Folk Alliance, Maine Songwriters Association, Common Ground traditional arts camp, and the Massachusetts Poetry Festival.
