This is the first of what will eventually become a regular series here on Piedmont Artist Profiles that I am calling Songwriter’s Circle. For each episode in the series I will sit down with two or more local songwriter’s and talk about the art, craft, and industry of songwriting. I hope that these shows will help raise the awareness of the craft, and help our local artists raise their profile, and get the recognition they deserve.
This first episode includes one of my buddies, Mr. Don Eidman. And I also got to finally meet Mitch Hayes.
pull from Americana, Country, and blues. He has a very centrist way of writing about social issues that I find refreshing in this time of extremes. You can catch Mitch this weekend for two shows. He’ll be performing at the Galway Hooker in Cornelius Friday August 4th at 10:00pm, and on Saturday August 5th you can find him in Pilot Mountain at The Living Room at 8:00 pm. Be sure to check him out on facebook and go to his website MitchHayesMusic.com for
updates and downloads.
