Sally Barris is coming back and this time she is bringing Rebecca Folsom with her!

Sally and Rebecca will be teaching a songwriting and performance workshop on Sunday, September 17 from 1:30-5:30 pm.  Sally and Rebecca are each nationally known and respected professional singer/songwriters whose music regularly hits the folk charts. They are each also highly respected teachers, so the opportunity to have both of them here co-teaching is not to be missed. They are experienced at working with a variety of levels of students, from novice to those who perform on a regular basis. The registration fee for the 4 hour workshop is $60 and there are only 15 seats, so reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment.

Sally and Rebecca will also do a house concert that evening at 7:30 pm. You are welcome to attend the workshop, the concert, or both. The suggested donation for the concert is $20 per person and reservations are required. For more information, or to make a reservation, contact Melissa at

Sally is currently touring with her new CD “The Road in Me”.
