Hone your songwriting chops

Preston Gunderson has paid his dues in the music world. The Virginia, Minn., native will be sharing the tricks of the trade Wednesday at the Duluth Public Library.

The singer-guitarist, who was a casting finalist for this year’s “The Voice” on NBC, released “The Recluse — EP” last year; it was in the top 25 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts. On Wednesday, he’ll play songs from that release and “While I Was Gone,” as well as sharing his story and offering songwriting tips. The program starts at 3 p.m.
