Once again we’re delighted that Folk 3D are back in the Clubrooms, hosting a heat in the John Birmingham Cup – Folk song-writing competition.
The competition will start at 2.30pm, and will run for as long as it takes to hear all of the entries (or until 4pm at the latest!) – get along early if you want to catch some new writing…
Judges for this year will be a duo who know more than a thing or two about writing cracking songs… Winter Wilson!
While Kip and Dave are deliberating, there will be a short performance from the winner of last year’s Derby heat, Vikki Appleton Fielden.
