Brian Laidlaw

Blues You Can Use
Collaborative Songwriting in the Spellerverse

Join professional songwriter and Unrestricted Interest co-founder Brian Laidlaw for an epic collaborative songwriting workshop! We’ll begin with a quick craft talk about the origins, conventions, and poetic “rules” of the blues form, and will then work together to create a blues song of our own.

Brian Laidlaw is an author and folksinger who recently received a PhD in English and Literary Arts from the University of Denver. In addition to putting out books and albums of his own – most recently the vinyl LP This Aster from Fonograf Editions – Brian is a co-founder of Unrestricted Interest, an organization offering Creative Writing mentorship to neurodivergent poets and songwriters. Now based in Moab, Utah, Brian continues to tour nationally with his band The Family Trade, and moonlights – often literally – as a rock climber.
