Songwriters’ names are usually masked by the artist who is front and center. It is easy to hear a song and believe that the performing artist wrote it, but that is often not the case. The Summer Songwriter Series is an opportunity to enjoy an intimate evening of music and conversation with the talent who wrote the award-winning songs. The concert on July 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Brenau Downtown Center will feature Jim McBride and Gary Nicholson. Tickets are available at the door prior to the show or at the John Jarrard Foundation website, https://www.johnjarrardfoundation.com/event/summer-songwriter-series-2014.
