Yes friends, we are carrying on in these wild times of physical isolation. We were sad to have cancelled a few shows early on but happy to report that we’re moving ahead with virtual concerts via Zoom featuring many of the artists who were scheduled to appear in person.

About Us

An unquenchable thirst for great songwriting combined with a love for the vessels who bring them to life – the songwriters – is the driving force behind ON THE TRACKS Songwriter Showcase. It was founded to bring our favorite writers to our neck of the woods by providing a venue to showcase their incredible gifts.

What makes this series unique is our focus on the songwriting. Our featured performers will be sharing insight into their inspirations and methods, the practical and magical process by which their songs come to life. You’ll hear lots of great songs of course, but you’ll also learn a little something about the art and craft of songwriting.
