Singers, Songwriters, and Saleem

October 9th, 2012 by Jordan Hernandez

Are you a singer or a songwriter? Do you enjoy listening to music? Do you enjoy free concerts? If your answer to any of those questions is yes, then our late night Singer/Songwriter Workshop is for you! This Thursday from 9-11p.m., WLOY is hosting a musical guest, Saleem, in the Reading Room. Remember Saleem? He has performed at Loyola a few times before and is always sure to please! His hip-hop style infused with the rhythm of Baltimore provides for a great musical treat. Bring instruments, original songs or whatever else you are working on and ask him for advice. Not a songwriter? Just come and enjoy!
