Ben Arthur is so taken by the creative process that it informs his art in a literal sense. Whether he’s responding to Kurt Andersen’s story of Puritan settler Anne Hutchinson with a modern answer in song, or co-writing with notable author George Saunders, Arthur stays busy crafting his own subgenre through collaborations. He hosts the Emmy-nominated video series “SongCraft Presents,” where guests such as My Brightest Diamond, John Wesley Harding, Vienna Teng, Lera Lynn and Ximena Sariñana write and record a song with him over the course of a day. Next, the Harrisonburg native joins Lauren Hoffman and Matt Curreri for Songwriters in the Round.

Friday, November 3. $10-12, 8:30pm. The Front Porch, 221 E. Water St. 242-7012.
