From August until December 2016, seven budding singer-songwriters with a lived experience of mental illness participated in a series of four workshops, followed by a recording session. This series of events is planned to finish in a series of rehearsals with a final performance and launch of CD and web links in March 2017. All seven singer-songwriters have made it through to the final cut and recorded their work. So it only remains for the CD to be launched !!!
Come and hear the songs they created – songs about the highs and lows of battling mental ill-health, songs about travel and adventure, and songs about just life itself. Performing alongside them will be a host of musicians set to include “The Bipolar Bears”, Ballarat’s “Sweet Monas”, the legendary Geoff Hassell and more. The CD Long Time Travelling will be launched at the event and will be on sale for only $10 per CD.
