The Writers Jam

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We’ve put together a group of magnificent songwriters to close out the EXPO in grand style. These four master musicians hail from across the genre spectrum, and they’re responsible for songs that have moved millions around the world. They’ll share the stories behind their best-loved songs, and perform them live in a stripped-down, in-the-round setting. The Writers Jam will cap off your EXPO experience with a fresh dose of inspiration to create your own music magic.
