Jenny and Robin live on WGN at Uncommon Ground Lakeview

LIVE AND IN PERSON!

Little Epiphanies, a songwriting workshop with Jenny Bienemann

Old Town School of Folk Music

You will amaze yourself. Yes, you are a wonder (you are!) and yes, you are a songwriting machine. You have demonstrated that again and again, even if you’re just starting out. But this is not about proving anything.

This is about encountering what you already know you know, but don’t remember that you know.

In this 80 minute workshop, we will use a multi-disciplinary approach that engages our senses, leverages our surroundings to arrive at/remember the little epiphanies that are the building blocks of truly great songs, and helps us explore where, within the structure of a song, they will be most resonant.

The husband and wife duo of Robin and Jenny Bienemann are both singer-songwriters and instrumentalists.

By turns hilarious and heartfelt, this cutting-edge acoustic duo melds original and traditional music with an elegant hint of jazz.  Robin's wild guitar stylings harken back to the earliest forms of jazz, blues and country guitar. Jenny’s voice and guitar playing evokes comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Ricki Lee Jones. Both write songs that are celebrations of modern life in all of its wonderful, strange and hilarious beauty, garnering airplay on National Public Radio, Dr. Demento, and The Midnight Special.
