Award-winning singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier leads the 8th annual MCL Grand Songwriting Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 22. The intimate, day-long workshop will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., during which time Gauthier will help participants tap into their inner writers’ voices and fine-tune their songs. Songwriters of all levels are invited to participate, whether or not they have works in progress to share. Tickets are $60 per person and include lunch and two tickets to Mary Gauthier’s Black Box Songwriter Series concert scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 23.
Gauthier’s most recent album, Rifles & Rosary Beads, is a collection of songs she co-wrote with US Veterans over the last five years through SongwritingWith:Soldiers, a non-profit that offers Veterans a chance to work with professional songwriters. Rifles & Rosary Beads was named Best Album of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards, nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album of the Year, nominated for Album of the Year by The Americana Music Association, and named #1 Best Singer/Songwriter Album of 2018 by LA Times.
Participation in this workshop is limited to 20 people.
The 8th annual MCL Grand Songwriting Workshop is part of the Black Box Songwriter Concert Series, which features singer-songwriters in an intimate, listening-room setting.

Both newcomers and veteran songwriters have played the series and given fans a chance to hear incredible songs as well as the stories behind them.
