Songwriters group brings workshop, scholarships to local


LAFAYETTE, Ind. − The Songwriters Association of Mid-North Indiana recently hosted a week-long workshop for local musicians and awarded one student a $400 scholarship.

SAMI and the workshop

Songwriter’s Association of Mid-North Indiana cofounder Scott Greeson talks about the workshop, Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at The Arts Federation in Lafayette, Ind.

SAMI was co-founded in 1992 by songwriters Brian Koning, Scott Greeson, Anita Wood and Mark Skidmore. Greeson, who also serves as the president of SAMI, spoke the Journal & Courier about the workshop, SAMI’s history and the Shirley Martin Scholarship.

“We’re an organization dedicated to the education and development of area songwriters and musicians,” Greeson said. “We just have a firm belief that when you help develop local and regional artists, that the community benefits and you have young people that want to go into careers in music. And we’ve seen that happen over 31 years through SAMI and some of the things we offer.”
