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

For more info visit burnsong.com and click on "The Gathering"

I've been quite interested in this for a while now. Only just submitted the 3 tracks via sonicbids.com (quite a good site for electronic press kits - see The Family Simpson-Sonicbids EPK for an example). Last year Chris Difford from Squeeze, King Creosote and about 10 other songwriters toured around Dumfries - Stirling after spending a few days together writing songs. Sounds an alright prize!

Only drawback - 10 entry fee.
