In March 2020, the world shut down. That same month, a few thousand Snow Patrol fans from around the globe met Gary Lightbody online to write songs. Together they created 13 songs in 12 weeks, and a fabulous 5-song EP—The Fireside Sessions by Snow Patrol and the Saturday Songwriters—was born.
Connections were made during that time. Friendships developed. Long after the 2020 sessions completed, the community of Saturday Songwriters continued to flourish.
Patchwork Poetry and Other Gibberish by the Saturday Songwriters contains over 100 poems, prose, and works of art by 39 Songwriters from over a dozen countries. In addition, each of the contributors has graciously included answers to a personal profile questionnaire, so that the world may learn a little bit more about some of the beautiful souls that make up The Saturday Songwriters.
