Dear Blue Rock family,
The stories of loss and courage, of pain and resilience, keep coming. This is a simple letter with a timely offer. We've created a new website to tell you about it.
Explore, hear the music, and help.

Pay what you want. Give what you can.
Or just listen.
2021 SONGWRITER WORKSHOPS
honoring John Cook
The Blue Rock Foundation hosted four workshops for aspiring and professional songwriters in the fall of 2021. Small groups gathered at Blue Rock Studio for an all-day dive into tools for unlocking their best kept songs. Our guides were masters of melody, lyric, and presentation: Willy Porter, Jonathan Byrd, Eliza Gilkyson, and Peter Mulvey. Unforgettable.
