ARCADIA – Singer-songwriters Joe Baxter and Mary Battiata will present a songwriting workshop on July 20 at the Arcadia Round Barn.
Battiata, who lives in Virginia, will lead the workshop along with Baxter, a Midwest City singer-songwriter who coordinates the live music at the Round Barn.
Battiata’s latest album, “The Heart, Regardless,” released last year, received four- and five-star reviews from critics across the country and the United Kingdom. The album reached #15 on the country and country Americana charts of the Roots Music Report.
Baxter’s newest album is called “The Weather.” In addition to his solo career he leads “The Regular Joes,” an original rock and roll band, and the Round Barn Ramblers, an acoustic group that plays country and bluegrass.
Participants in the two-hour workshop should be prepared to take notes, Baxter said. There is no charge for the workshop.
Admission is free to the Round Barn, but donations are accepted for the maintenance of the barn, which is located six miles east of Interstate 35 on Historic Route 66. For more information about the workshop, call Baxter at 405-833-1350.
