Songwriter's Spotlight

The New Hazlett Theater proudly presents: "Songwriter's Spotlight", an intimate evening of performance, storytelling and conversation, hosted by Joe Grushecky and Rick Witkowski along with three of Pittsburgh's emerging song writing talents: Ben Hardt of New Victorians, Abby Abbondanza formerly of Povertyneck Hillbillies, and Vocal powerhouse and rising star Vanessa Campagna.

"Songwriter's Spotlight" will engage audience members with an interesting look into the inner workings of the Pittsburgh music scene, offering a new perspective on the song writing process. Each artist performs songs they have written, tells the stories behind the songs, and performs a song they wish they had written. The audience is included in the conversation and witnesses spontaneous collaborations among the musicians.
