The international songwriters retreat that I attended on the West Coast of Ireland was an absolutely incredible time. 16 writers from 7 countries worked together for 7 days on the beautiful island of Inisheer. The capable leadership duo of Brett Perkins and Alan Roy Scott created an environment where co-writing ruled supreme, many many great songs were created, and many new friends were made. The retreat included new-song showcases in 3 locales in Ireland and were very well received. The local hospitality and Guinness in the local pub on Inisheer were both extraordinary!
