Subject: RE: Contemporary song in folk music
every 2 years the Maidenhead folk club hold a song contest
This year it will take place on the final thursday in March, I think.
Entry forms and rules are now available.
Last time there were 18 entries. this will be the nth time its taken place the club has been in existance for over 32 years.
If you aint acquainted with it maybe its worth getting to know
Jez was there recently
The winning song 2 years ago was a fantastic Folk song called The Bevin Boys narrating the story of life as a Bevin Boy, written by Tony Geen who has other songs of quality, but getting to hear him is avery rae treat. Extremely well researched and cleverly written with a 2, 2, chorus.!
I'm lucky to know it and to perform it.
Anyone can enter
There is a web site.
its on the A4 7 miles east of Reading,at the 7 stars
Be there on that night and se what turns up, I know I will incase there are other class gems to hear.
