Songwriter Virtual Roundtable: How does music shape our everyday lives?

Thu 04.16.20 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT

  • This event has passed.

Three Madison-area songwriters share their musical craft, discuss the role of music, and why they write songs.

Music is a central part of our lives: it inspires our communities, it moves and motivates us individually, and it brings people together. Local Madison-area songwriters Travis Agnew, Micah Behr, and Hannah Busse will join us virtually to discuss their songwriting inspiration and methodology, how music connects with each one of them individually, and how they hope to inspire us as listeners of their craft. Each songwriter will perform a song as a reflection of our current cultural moment. We hope this event will stimulate your imagination, generate hope, and reduce the anxiety that you may be feeling in this season of life.

About the songwriters:

Travis Agnew is a Madison native, worship director, husband, and father, who has lived all over the United States and traveled the globe. His musical styles range from alt-country, folk, rock, and indie, to blues and reggae. Travis writes gritty songs that reflect his passion and energy, and his wrestling with brokenness, love, and forgiveness.

Micah Behr is a professional viola player, collaborative pianist, composer, performer, and music teacher. He received his Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Wisconsin in 2014 and currently serves as the worship director and artist in residence at Geneva Campus Church. His 2019 EP, Nobler Powers, features retuned and new hymns that explore the character of God.

Hannah Busse is a singer-songwriter, folk-pop recording artist, worship director, wife, and mom. Named the Madison Area Music Association’s 2018 New Artist of the Year, Hannah’s reputation as a songwriter and performer is on the rise. Ranging from driving to quirky to reflective, her songs hold common threads of honest lyrics and captivating melodies driven from her piano.
