What we're about

The Songwriting Collective (TSC) is a group of individuals dedicated to the art of songwriting in the Dublin area. We were formerly based in Rua Red Arts Building in Tallaght and before the pandemic we had access to the IMRO building off Baggot Street, where IMRO kindly agreed to host us on a monthly basis. During the pandemic we moved our activities online. Our goal is to develop the songwriting skills of our members and expand our network both locally and internationally. Each workshop meeting provides those participating with an opportunity to engage in activities such as co-writing, sharing experiences and the chance to explore the many-sided craft of songwriting. Songwriting circles enable our members to receive feedback.

We also run an "Open Mic" session every two weeks in the Wellington Pub off Baggot Street Bridge where our members and friends can hone their performance skills before a live audience.We are continuing to hold our online workshops online.

If you wish to perform, please leave a message here and come early. If possible slots will be allocated broadly in line with time of arrival. Early arrivals may also have the opportunity to sing more songs.

We also welcome spoken word contributions.

Our Host will be Darren A. Flynn

Our special guest will be Tony Bardon co-founder of the Songwriting Collective. www.tonybardon.com

Due to Covid 19 you will be required to bring your own dynamic microphone.

The best place for parking near the Wellington is on Wilton Terrace, which is the first turn on the left after you go over Baggot Street Bridge on your way into town. There is free parking on the right.
