Where Songs Come From: Performance by Bridgetown Junction

Friday, May 3rd, 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Singer-songwriters, Amanda Walsh and Rick Szeklyi from Bridgetown Junction will present an evening of original music, back-stories, and discuss how they craft their songs.

Amanda Walsh, a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, has been playing music since she was seven years old. Amanda combines her passion for songwriting, fiction and poetry with her love of unpredictable chord changes and dreamy piano passages. Her influences include Claude Debussy, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Anne Sexton and Nina Simone. Amanda released her solo album, Magic is Real, last year.

Rick Szekelyi has been playing guitar since he was eight years old. After six decades, he decided to get serious about songwriting. Influenced by Kris Kristofferson, Townes Van Zandt,  Ernest Hemingway, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle, his writing captures sounds from days gone by, ethnic flavorings and other cultural sounds. To encourage others to pursue songwriting, during the last five years Rick has hosted numerous songwriter circles, open mics and has, with Amanda, facilitated songwriting workshops.
