About Us

All artists benefit from interaction and collaboration. For amateur songwriters, contact is often limited to family, friends and open stages.Pittsburgh Songwriters Circle, a project of Calliope: The Pittsburgh Folk Music Society, offers amateur and semi-pro songwriters free monthly contact, song critiquing and discussion, free and paid gigs, affordable and educational recording opportunities and camaraderie with other Pittsburgh-area songwriters. For many members the group has served as a springboard to their first independent recordings and professional performances. Pittsburgh Songwriters Circle’s website and Facebook page disseminate group information and post members’ events, photos, videos and bios.
