Shari Ulrich, an award winning Canadian songwriter since the mid-seventies, and former associate professor of Lyric and Libretto in UBC’s Creative Writing department, will be discussing the power of “the song.” Having been raised in the US, the music of these three esteemed songwriters in a style now often referred to as Americana, is in her blood.

“All the elements of the craftsmanship of a song that speaks to listeners: melody, lyrics, chord movement, form, rhyme, patterns and of course the sharing of a story, all delivered by the human voice, are the magical elements that allow a song to ‘work’ for the human ear and heart. As listeners there is no need to experience the journey of a song with an analytical mind and yet knowing why and how it works from the perspective of a writer is a phenomenon endlessly fascinating to me.”
