Wounded Warriors at Nebo is partnering with The Texas Heritage Music Foundation to provide a Soldier Songs & Voices (SSV) event hosted by songwriting coaches Bernie Nelson, George Ensle, Butch Hancock, and Dustin Welch. Veterans, both retired and active duty, who served in combat areas will work with these professional song writers to create a song that tells their story.
“The Soldier Songs & Voices, a non-profit organization, has been helping veterans using the therapeutic modality of songwriting with the aftermath of conflict duty since 2011.”
Participating veterans will arrive on Friday, September 16th. Then on Saturday, September 17, the veterans and their song writing coach will present their songs.
If you or someone you know are interested in participating in this event, let us know by contacting Elizabeth Fargason at (830) 998-3254 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Space is limited to 15 participants and their spouses.
Remember, food and lodging cost you nothing!!
Copied from SSV’s website: “Soldier Songs & Voices is a nonprofit organization that provides free instruments and songwriting lessons to veterans as a form of post-conflict care. Through music education and community-based outreach, we provide veterans with tools to turn their stories into songs so the nation can hear their voices. Our goal is to create communities that honor veterans of all generations. We do not just support veterans–we invest in them.” Check out their website at https://www.soldiersongsandvoices.com/more information and some of the songs they have helped other veterans write.
