LEGEND IN FOCUS: LEAD BELLY
Each Strangeberry Jam Friending Game examines the work of a legendary musician whose work has had a powerful and lasting influence on contemporary music. This time, we look at the infamous LEAD BELLY. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lead_Belly)

SONGS IN FOCUS

MUSICIAN CHALLENGE
Our participating musos have 20 mins each round to discuss the song in focus. At the end of the 20 min, artists will step up to perform the song! It may be rough and wild, stopped, argued about on stage and restarted differently… The audience will be given an insight into the musical creation process, and we will see different musical personalities interacting on stage.

AUDIENCE SOCIAL CHALLENGE
Guests are sat at tables of four and are rotated around so that they have different conversation buddies for each round.

Each round comes with a discussion question based on the song in focus. Beware! These questions will lead you into conversations that you would never expect to be having on your first meeting with a new friend! They may be intimate, strange, complex, revealing, or even a little confronting. Forget about the usual “what do you do for a living” chit-chat, these questions will challenge you to risk a little more of yourself.
