This concert is part of the Music and Storyteller Sessions: 

Sue McLean & Associates and The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis present The Music & Storyteller Sessions, offering fans a rich live event experience with some of today’s most prolific voices in music and literature. Audiences will have the unique opportunity to hear the inside stories and inspiring events that have shaped the creative journeys of some of their favorite established and emerging artists. There is an opportunity for fans to submit their own questions in advance of the show, with a selection to be answered during the performance.

Words & Music by Dan Wilson is an evening of songs and stories that pulls back the curtain on the art and practice of songwriting. Between stripped-down renditions of some of the modern-day classics he has written on his own and with such collaborators as Adele, Taylor Swift, the Chicks, Chris Stapleton and Carole King, Grammy winning singer- songwriter and producer Dan Wilson shares his insights into songwriting and relates the moments of discovery that led to them. His double life as a musician and visual artist has attuned him to the deeper questions of the creative process, one of the reasons he has become such a sought-after collaborator.
