Get advice from seasoned songwriter, Judy Banker. From nailing down that bridge, to fine tuning your lyrics, Judy will help your music really sing!

This songwriting workshop will be appropriate for beginners and more experienced musicians. Join us for an hour of learning, then stop by Tommy Stinson's evening performance for more inspiration. 

Described as “…one of the brightest stars on the acoustic music scene by PULP online and “a monster singer-songwriter” by SEMIBluegrass, Judy Banker is known for her hook-driven songs with intensively personal, evocative lyrics, and her singular, expressive voice. Judy combines her compelling lyrics with traditional country instruments – acoustic guitar, dobro, pedal steel, banjo – and weaves them with a dirty, gritty buzz and spacey vibe of an electric guitar, lap steel, and keyboards. She brings her sound to solo and Judy Banker Band performances at clubs, festivals, and concert halls like The Ark, Johnny’s Speakeasy, Farmington Civic Theater, Mama's Coffeehouse, Michigan Theatre of Jackson, Trinity House Theatre, Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Nor East’r Music Festival, Harvest Gathering, Detroit Arts, Beats, & Eats, Holler Fest, and the Rosalie Sorrels Music Festival in Boise, Idaho. Her most 2020 full-length album, Buffalo Motel, was dubbed by Current Magazine “a big sounding record…a hybrid of Americana, folk-rock and tender balladry…momentous, and ruminative”.
