CES presents Songwriting Workshop: We the People: Voices for Change

More About CES presents Songwriting Workshop: "We the People: Voices for Change"

Create a modern-day song of protest with songwriter and musician Kyshona, using the voice as a motivator for change. Participants will be encouraged to complete a verse and chorus of their own, allowing them to walk away from the workshop with a song to build upon in their own time.

This virtual workshop will take place via Zoom. The link for participation will be posted on the CES ( click for details )and Appalachian Festival ( click for details ) Facebook pages.

About the artist: Kyshona merges her experiences in songwriting and music therapy to focus on one mission: to be a voice and a vessel for those who feel lost, forgotten, silenced or in pain.

Born and raised in South Carolina into a family of gospel musicians, Kyshona first found her musical footing in the study of classical music. During her music therapy studies at the University of Georgia, she explored Appalachian folk song and instrumentation.

Kyshona is privileged to work with adults and youth experiencing homelessness, incarceration, trauma, and isolation. For more than 13 years, her work as a music therapist has brought her to treatment facilities, rehabilitation programs, mental health facilities, forensics units, nursing homes and special needs schools.
