Returning for his third Singer-Songwriter Showcase, Clayton N. Schroeder is a full-time husband, father of two, and seasonal songwriter. "I pick up my guitar when I hear Ferdinand calling, and then I let it go into hibernation after the last campfire in the fall," states Schroeder. "When it comes to songwriting, I'm not a weekend warrior--I'm a seasonal samurai." A storyteller at heart, his homegrown, Hoosier folk songs come from his life, his jobs, and his friends. "As they say, 'Write what you know.'"
