    We're having the first Houston Chapter meeting of Soldier Songs on September 16 at the JP Hops House. Soldier Songs is an organization that offers music lessons and songwriting workshops for veterans that are interested in honing an existing talent or pursuing music for the first time. All veterans are welcome to come hang out and talk about, learn and share songs with local musicians. This is a community-building group. There's no set agenda. We work on songs because it's what we love to do. And it's our way of giving back. This is going to be a monthly event with different musicians participating and will hopefully expand into multiple parts of Houston. Bring instruments, bring songs, bring ideas...just bring yourself. More information about Solider Songs is available at www.voicesofagratefulnation.com
