Vance Gilbert Workshop • Saturday, August 6th • 1 -4 PM • Workshop Tickets $35.00 or $25 with show ticket purchase

A great song does not by itself get heard. It needs to be performed so that a producer, publisher, record exec, and most importantly your fans can be part of its full impact. It’s a “collision course” Vance offers where performance and songwriting are inextricably intertwined entities. Here’s your chance to pick up and hone some skills that will make your song and its presentation shine. Everything from keeping time, arrangement of the song, what key, “getting the guitar out of the way”, the cliché police, posture, vocal stuff, even how to approach the stage and plug in the guitar will be examined on the mike in a safe and supportive “open mike-ish” atmosphere.


Saturday, August 6th • Doors @ 6:30PM • Show @ 8:00PM • General Admission: $35

Vance has been a well-deserved audience favorite for years, and at every venue he performs at. Richmond magazine once said “...if Joni Mitchell and Richie Havens had a love child, with Rodney Dangerfield as the midwife, the results might have been something close to the great Vance Gilbert.” His prolific career and both hilarious as well as moving performances have endeared him to us here as not only a performer we are very proud to present, but as a friend we are grateful to welcome. Don’t miss this chance to see and hear Vance at the Guthrie Center!
