We are happy to announce our next Nowhere Else songwriting workshop, the weekend of February 17-19, 2023! Come join us on the farm for a deep dive into this beautiful mystery called songwriting. We’ll share some of the most important and useful things we’ve learned in the last 30+ years. You’ll be invited (but not obligated) to offer your songs, and we’ll do some collaborating as well. Please help us spread the word to those you know who may be interested. Email for more info.

A little background info: for 15 consecutive years, we led weeklong songwriting workshops in Santa Fe as part of the Glen Workshop, sponsored by Image journal. When that chapter drew to a close, we were so honored when Image announced they were establishing an Over the Rhine songwriting scholarship: in future years, a songwriter will receive a “full ride” in our name to attend the Glen and study the craft of writing. (Pictured is one of our groups of songwriters in Santa Fe – always surprising and inspiring to gather and learn from each other and watch new songs arrive. We strive for camaraderie, laughter and the occasional epiphany.)

We have also led songwriting workshops at Nowhere Else for five years, but took a break during the pandemic. We are thrilled to begin hosting these gatherings again in our restored, climate-controlled barn. Join us! Email for more info.

In these uncertain times, it feels like we need music more than ever. Songs can re-invite people into that treasure of treasures: a real conversation. Songs can provide a safe container for the conflicted emotions many of us are feeling. And we’ve heard it over and over: music heals. Come join us on the farm for a transformative weekend. Email for more info.


The workshop experience is all about taking a few steps forward in your songwriting life, regardless of whether you are just starting out, or have been writing and recording for years. We’ve been told the workshop is helpful to writers of any persuasion, not just songwriters. (If you don’t consider yourself a songwriter but love music and records, hopefully this workshop will deepen your ability to listen. We need good listeners too. And you will still have the opportunity to collaborate. You might be surprised.) Email for more info.

Rivers and oceans,
