Burnsong -get your song heard by the whole of Scotland


Recommended Posts

Less than four weeks to go until the deadline for songs to be submitted to The Gathering.

Burnsong are inviting budding songwriters of all ages and musical styles to submit a self-penned song to see if they have what it takes to follow in the tradition of the Scottish bard.

Your song can be in any style, genre and language or dialect but must have been written and / or composed since June 2005.

Songs can either be wholly original or adapted eg. new words to an existing tune or new tune to existing words.

Selected songwriters will be chosen by a panel of expert judges to

* participate in a unique week long songwriting residential course run by leading songwriters to develop their winning song to performance level

* have their song showcased at the Big Gig on St Andrews night, broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland, and produced as part of the Burnsong 2007 CD

Deadline for submissions is May 15th
