TOPIC FOLK CLUB, BRADFORD

At Glyde House, Glydegate, Bradford BD5 0BQ

Newsletter 206 - August 2019

Hello again everyone, 

Happy Yorkshire Day!

Just a brief note to remind you that although we don't have any guest nights in August there will be a singers and musicians night on each of the Thursdays, starting at 8.00 pm, entry is of course free. There will be an MC each week: feel free to come down and sing a song, play a tune, read a poem, or just listen.

I'll try to get the next newsletter out a bit earlier than usual to let you know what's coming up in our Autumn season, though I may be away for the last few days in August: if you really can't wait there are some details on the website (www.topic-folk-club.org.uk). I'll mention now that the first guests of the season on 5th September will be The Hall brothers with John Carey, a welcome return for this popular local trio who have bee under the radar for a while: it will be good to see them back at the club.

A couple of items that may be of interest have just come to my notice:

FREE TICKET to Saltburn Folk Festival (including camping)

A long standing Topic member who has a ticket to Saltburn Folk Festival which runs from 9th to 11th August 2019, including camping, is unable to go due to having had an operation and is offering the ticket free to anyone who would like it. If anyone wishes to take up this kind offer, let me know asap and I'll put you in touch with the donor.

LICHFIELD ARTS SONG WRITING COMPETITION

I've just received news of this event: I'll quote the press release in full so that anyone interested can read on, or you can skip it if it's not your thing:

QUOTE

Singers, songwriters, musicians, and lyricists are reminded that they only have until September 7th to enter the L2F Song Writing 2019 competition. 

Now in its third year, Lichfield Arts Song Writing Competition aims to support, encourage and develop new folk song writing talent. Prizes include cash awards of 150 for Best Overall Song, and 50 for Best Song in the under 19 category, time in a Recording studio to record the Best Overall Song, and all finalists will be invited to attend a song writing masterclass led by the internationally acclaimed John Tams.

For the purposes of the competition, Lichfield Arts defines ‘folk’ in the widest sense of the genre, encompassing both traditional and contemporary styles. Songs shortlisted for the final will be performed at Lichfield Festival of Folk (L2F) on Sunday 20th October, where awards will be made for the overall winner, and a separate award for the winner in the Under-19 category.

Entry is open to anyone resident in the United Kingdom, and entrants may enter as either individuals, or as part of a team. Up to two songs can be entered, with a maximum running time of five minutes. Entry to the competition is 5.00 per song for entrants 19 years or older on 1 September 2019, and free to entrants aged 19 or under.

Songs will be judged on their compositional merit, not on their performance.

A spokesman said ‘The L2F song writing competition is a great opportunity for all creatives, it goes from strength to strength, and attracts increasingly high quality entries. Get your thinking caps on, and your vocal cords and instruments tuned. We can’t wait to hear your aural creations’.

Competition entry forms, and other information is available by visiting https://l2f.co.uk/l2f/song-writing-competition-2019/enter-the-l2f-song-writing-competition/

Hope to see you  in September, if not before, In the meantime have a good summer whatever you're up to.

Best wishes,

Tony Charnock, Topic newsletter editor
