Event description

Description

Songs have the power to educate, inform, change things and make a difference. Highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Steve Knightley will be running a song writing workshop here at BU. The workshop will be useful whether you would like to introduce a new creative dimension to your teaching, develop your own poetic or lyrical imagination, or create a song yourself. Academics, support staff, students and invited local musicians are invited to join Steve for an interesting and practical session. There is no charge for this event but booking is required.

Steve Knightley is a multi-award winning singer-songwriter/musician and founder member of widely acclaimed folk/acoustic roots trail-blazers Show of Hands, who has written “many fine songs” according to Peter Gabriel. As well as his monumental international career with Show of Hands, Knightley has a successful solo career and several other acclaimed collaborations under his belt, including guesting with Mick Jagger. His social conscience is strongly connected to his song writing and he is active in the wider community, including as Artistic Director of ’19,240 Shrouds of the Somme’, a Great War Remembrance project in Exeter. In 2015 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Plymouth University for services to music. Publishing five song books by 2017, he runs song writing workshops and mentors young musicians.
