Workshop at 6 PM, Music at 7:30 PM

141 Main Ave W, Downtown Winsted

Brian Laidlaw is a poet-songwriter originally from San Francisco. He graduated from the University of Minnesota MFA program in Poetry, and went on to spend several years on the Songwriting faculty at McNally Smith College of Music in St Paul.

Brian has released a number of books and records, most recently Amoratorium (Paper Darts Press), The Stuntman (Milkweed Editions) and Jeremiad (Hymie’s Vintage Records), and is now a full-time touring folksinger, traveling nationally and internationally with his Twin Cities-based folk band The Family Trade.

On Sunday, Nov 13, Brian will lead a poetry-songwriting workshop at 6 PM, open to writers of all ages and ability levels. This will be followed by a concert by Brian and fellow Family Trade bandmate Ashley Hanson at 7:30 PM.

Free event, but donations gladly accepted. Registrations also requested as space is limited.
