Charlie Phillips Stops By Something New, May 25

Singer/songwriter Charlie Phillips will stop by the WTJU studios on Wednesday afternoon, May 25, for a visit.  He will chat with Something New host Emily about the seventeenth annual Survivors reunion.  Rumor is he might even perform a few tunes.

In July 1999, 25 songwriters attended the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY to attend a songwriting workshop given by Jimmie Dale Gilmore. From this week-long workshop, lifelong friendships and creative collaborations were forged among the attendees. So profound was the workshop that some of the attendees reconvene every May at Camp Albemarle in Charlottesville, Virginia to continue the collaborative process set in motion by Gilmore.

This year marks the 17th annual reunion of this group now known as the “Survivors”. Each year, the Survivors hold a benefit concert at a local venue to perform their latest songs. This year’s show will take place on Thursday, May 26, at 7 pm at Camp Albemarle and will benefit Camp Albemarle. Camp Albemarle was built by the CCC and is used by the 4H Club and City and County schools for environmental education.
