Songwriters at Play Workshop Featuring Mason Summit

Born into a family of actors, musicians, & writers, Mason Summit has been making music for as long as he can remember. As a young child, he cut his teeth performing Johnny Cash covers at local coffee shops, accompanied by his father, the late Christopher Allport, whose sudden death in 2008 led Summit to songwriting. Inspired by Buddy Holly, Brian Wilson, Elliott Smith & Jon Brion, Summit began producing his own material early on. To date, he has independently released four self-produced albums of original songs: Absentee (2012), Loud Music & Soft Drinks (2014), Gunpowder Tracks (2016), & this year’s Summer Cold, each of which has received critical acclaim from publications including revered alt-country authority No Depression.

Special guests include Lauren Hatcher, Scott Erdiakoff, John Nowel, Matt Yaki, guest host Craig Louis Dingman.

Showcase runs 6:30-9:00 at 7Sisters Brewing, 181 Tank Farm Rd. (at Long St., just north of Higuera), San Luis Obispo, (805) 868-7133. All ages OK, no cover charge. Craft beers, wine and food available too.
