First Friday Song Writers

The First Friday Songwriter Conversations occur during the First Friday Art Trails, once a month during the school year. These are small intimate concerts in which local song writers come together to talk about the craft of song writing. They listen to recordings, perform their own music, and share stories. See below for the 2010-2011 Concert Schedule and click on the links for short excerpts from each performance.

This event is sponsored by the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center, and takes place at the Underwood Center’s Firehouse Theatre, located at 511 Avenue K in downtown Lubbock. For more information, please see and
