The Acoustic Jam, an acoustic band and music showcase provider, will launch a new event in Delaware this month. The group is teaming up with its frequent host venue, Aqua Sol, to provide a “Writers In The Round” for local songwriters to showcase their original music. The event is modeled after Nashville Tennessee’s Bluebird Café which has earned global acclaim for its devotion to songwriters and the craft of songwriting. The Bluebird made its primetime debut this year on the hit ABC drama Nashville and remains a key element in the storyline.
The Acoustic Jam’s “Writers In The Round” will be a monthly event on the last Thursday of each month beginning January 31st. Writers will be asked to prepare 6 original, performance-ready pieces in an intimate setting. They will face their fellow writers and perform their pieces acoustically on a rotating basis. There will be conversation between the writers regarding how the song came about including anecdotes from the process. There will be two sets with an intermission. Each writer will perform three songs in each set.
