The term singer-songwriter describes a distinct form of artistry, closely associated with the folk-acoustic traditions but encompassing multiple musical genres.  Singer-songwriters are often the only accompaniment to an entire composition or song, typically using a guitar or piano; both the compositions and the arrangements are written primarily as solo vehicles, with the material focused on contemporary issues—sometimes political, sometimes introspective, historical, romantic and confessional. Often, the songs written by these musicians serve not only as entertainment, but to educate and protest. We’ll explore the stories and music behind a cadre of artists--Ian Anderson, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, Al Stewart, Jim Croce, Neil Finn and Justin Hayward, some well-known, and others not so, but whose art has influenced and defined generations.
