Quantcast
A BUNCH OF SONGWRITERS SITTIN’ AROUND SINGING

The concept for In Their Own Words was developed by Allan Pepper and Vin Scelsa during the first part of 1990. Their aim was to create a special kind of musical performance – one that struck a balance between concert and interview, allowing artists to open up their vast stores of musical resources, and share insight into the process of songwriting.

More than 140 songwriters performed at 37 ITOW shows at The Bottom Line, and at over 100 shows on the road, between 1990-1996.

This collection features breathtaking performances and stories behind the songs by Pete Seeger,  Billy Bragg,  John Cale,  Bruce Cockburn,  Suzanne Vega, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook and many more.
