MUSIC IS BEING MADE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Listen to the music that's been created in the Appleton Area during the month of February, inspired by February Album Writing Month (FAWM) - a global online community of songwriters!
Learn more about FAWM, below, and/or at fawm.org
This is a showcase of local singer-songwriters who have been creating a ton of music throughout the month of February - many of us have (or will) even reach the goal of 14 songs in 28 days!
This event is an opportunity for local, original songwriters to share a limited number of these songs LIVE - with each other and our community. Some interesting/educational FAWM stories are sure to surface, as well.
SATURDAY 24 MARCH 5pm-8pm
The number of musicians participating continues to grow. We are limited our total event time to 3 hours, regardless of how many people play. So, the amount of time we each get will vary depending on number of participants.
History of FAWM
"FAWM began in February 2004 as a personal project of singer-songwriter Burr Settles, who was inspired after completing a short novel for NaNoWriMo. He recruited three friends to join him in attempting to compose 14 new songs during the month. Since all four so-called "fawmers" lived in different time zones, they used a blog to track their progress and encourage one another. Each of them met or surpassed the 14-song goal, with 66 songs total.
"Due to expressed interest from songwriters who stumbled upon the FAWM 2004 archive, the challenge was opened up to the public in February 2005 at FAWM.ORG, where the challenge has remained. Registered users may post demo recordings of their new songs to keep track of their progress and elicit feedback."
