Write After Dinner with Lisa Bastoni - Friday April 21, 2017

Write After Dinner Series: 
Writing Music for The Wishing Hour with Singer/Songwriter Lisa Bastoni
Friday, April 21st at 7:00pm in The Albion Cultural Exchange

Wakefield—Join us Friday, April 21st at 7:00pm in The Albion Cultural Exchange located at 9 Albion Street, Wakefield, MA to learn about writing original music and the process of assembling an album. Singer/songwriter Lisa Bastoni will play a few songs from her newly released album

The Wishing Hour and will take us all along on the journey a song travels from its origin, in a singer’s soul, on through to its anticipated destination—our ears.  The Wishing Hour, which was produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter/ producer Felix McTeigue, features performances by Josh Kantor, The Mastersons, Kelly Hogan, Naomi Sommers, Ellie Buckland and more. The UK Maverick declares, "Ten cracking tracks...the songs are Americana of the highest order, think along the lines of Gretchen Peters or Patty Griffin, with high quality musos to match."  

You do not want to miss this up-close and personal look at the musician behind the music. Coffee and tea will be available along with something for your sweet tooth. This is a free event sponsored by The Room to Write and The Albion Cultural Exchange, however, donations of any amount will be collected along with 10% of The Wishing Hour CD purchases to benefit Wakefield Music Boosters who support the performing arts in Wakefield and the future singer/songwriters among us.
