Entry forms for this years competition are available from the Gainsborough Folk Club website
"This songwriting event came into being in 1992 as the "BBC
Radio Lincolnshire Write a Lincolnshire Folk Song Competition",
with input from Heritage Lincolnshire. Having taken a gap
year in 2009 the event returned, this time sponsored by
Heritage Lincolnshire, but still recorded and broadcast by the
BBC. During its lifetime the event has generated up to 500
new folk songs about our county (although it is still said we
only have one – The Lincolnshire Poacher!!!). It has given a
platform for, and helped hone the skills of, the county's thriving
and talented songwriting community. It has given impetus
and confidence to new songwriters and challenged those
already seized by the writing bug. It has given life to songs
that have gone on to become folk classics - songs such as
Dave Evardson's 'North Wall' and Paul Dickinson's anthemic
'Sausage Song'. Not least it has provided an annual meeting
place for songwriters to hear and appreciate each other's
work. Long may it continue."
