Back from their workshops at the Wisconsin Music Arts Festival (WMAF) this past June 22, our workshop leaders will take the stage in an extraordinary display of talent.  Our leaders include singers and songwriters Stephanie Elkins, Eric Hester, Emily Hurd, Beth Kille, and Anna Vogelzang.  Monroe Arts Center is thrilled to have this array of talent on stage in a single evening.  Joining this talented group will be some of the fine participants from the festival workshops.  We are pleased to showcase both leaders and participants in what promises to be an evening of words and music well worth remembering.

Die Trying is from Anna’s February 2012 album, Canary in a Coal Mine.
It was engineered and mixed by James Frazee
and Frank Lopez,
and recorded at Hobo Sound in Weehawken, New Jersey.
Mastered at the Blue Room at the Magic Shop
by Warren Russell-Smith.
Anna’s songs
are available on Amazon and iTunes.

Been Accused is performed by Beth Kille, and written by Beth Kille and Jessi
Lynn. It features both the staff and campers from Girls Rock Camp in Madison,
Wisconsin.  This single is off Beth’s 2012 album, Dust, available on iTunes.

This is
the title track from Emily’s 8th album, Long Lost Ghosts.  It was written by Emily Hurd,
produced by John Abbey and mastered by Mike Hagler at Kingsize Sound Labs in Chicago,
Illinois.  It features Emily Hurd (piano, vocals, ukulele), John Abbey (upright bass, guitar),
Darren Garvey (drums,
vocals), Maria McCullough (fiddle), and Sue Demel (vocals).
This album is available on iTunes.

The video for Daylight is the first single from Eric Hester's new CD
titled 5 Dollar Cover.  This new series from Slothtrop Records
features artists covering songs that helped shape them as songwriters.
While mostly consisting of past over favorites or long forgotten gems,
each CD tells a story all it's own.
