Ah, yes I missed it too & would have loved to be involved.

Perhaps if it happens next year & is posted here, someone could refresh it occasionally until the competition end date?

Sounds great, good luck to all on the shortlist....

The 2011 competition is now open for entries. The only strict rule is solo, unaccompanied singing.
Full details here.
Probably of most interest to UK-based catters, but there are no geographical limits in the rules.
Closing date for entries is 31st October 2011.
Go on, have a go. You know you want to!

Sounds fun. Thank you for refreshing. It would be a shame if this were meant to be "across the World Wide Web" and only a small slice of people within limited earshot knew to do it.

Two things I'm not clear on:
1) Is this for English singers only?
2) What range of song style/genre are we talking about here? Like, can we sing blues? Original songs? etc.
thanks and cheers

The title of the competition is "Trad2mad". This refers to the wide range of material that is performed at Islington Folk Club from the tradition to the eccentric. Any genre/style will be welcome and considered on it's merits. I also believe it is NOT limited to English singers.
Likewise it's a "Yes" to original songs, blues, etc. Only strict rules are solo and unaccompanied.
