999 Songs Out Of 1,000: Quechee Songwriter Challenge Strikes A Chord

Sep 24, 2018

Sipping a cup of coffee. Floating down a river. Laundry detergent. Song lyrics can capture memories of relaxing mornings, summer adventures or even mundane daily duties. Writing lyrics like these are now very familiar to Dan Weintraub, a Quechee-based singer/songwriter, as he nears the end of a unique songwriting challenge: writing a song per day for 1,000 days

On Tuesday, Sept. 25, Weintraub will write song 999, the penultimate composition of his ambitious songwriting odyssey. 

Weintraub joins Vermont Edition to explore the songs that have come out of nearly three years of writing music, and why Weintraub says he may never compose another song after this project ends.

Broadcast live on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
