Saltburn Folk Festival

13th - 16th August 2020


The John Taylor Memorial Awards for New Composition and Performance

Two new competitions:

The first focusing on new composition: songwriting, melody composition or instrumental, spoken word.
The second targeting the art and skills of performing, either a song, accompanied or a cappella, a set of tunes or a storytelling performance.

Both competitions will be open to non professional artists who are seeking exposure and have never previously been paid for their work.

Festival volunteers and non-season ticket holders will also be eligible to enter.

Judging for both competitions will take place during the festival weekend.

The judges will be selected from the professional guests appearing at the festival.

Entry forms will be available on this website soon and must be submitted to the Festival Office by the 31st July 2020
