The Return of Richard Knott’s ‘Songwriters Circle’

Euroblues Promotions is pleased to announce the return of the successful ‘Songwriters Circle’ to Blues Week 2022. These informal, collaborative and fun sessions have proved very popular in previous years. The Circle will take place on two evenings (Monday and Tuesday) and will be led by singer/songwriter Richard Knott. Richard has been attending Blues Week since 2006 and is well known and respected for his thoughtful and witty songs, with great guitar skills to match.

This year, both sessions will be dedicated to giving students the opportunity to talk about and play their songs, and get feedback (if required!) from their fellow songwriters. There’ll be time for group discussions, ideas for overcoming writer’s block, a chance to get help with any unfinished songs, or just to try out a new song on a friendly and supportive audience. Students who would like to write but don’t know where to start will be welcome too – to ask questions, pick up some inspiration to start their own songwriting journey, or just to listen. The range of songs aired in previous years has been incredible – not just blues but folk, country, jazz, Americana, soul – there are no limits!
