For the third year running Todmorden Folk Festival will offer a prestigious spot within the folk festival programme to a young performer from the local area.

Come and see the competing acts at the Fielden Centre, Todmorden on the 27th Jan – 7pm

If you are a local budding musician or singer with an interest in either folk music or songwriting please apply!

Selected artists will be invited to perform in the concert on the 27th January. You will receive one free adult ticket for the event (for your parent or carer) and receive feedback from our panel of experts. You will be expected to perform at least 3 songs. Unaccompanied singers are welcome to apply but we won’t programme performers planning to use backing tracks or adult accompaniment. Performers should be 21 or under.

The winning finalist will be offered the prestigious opportunity of opening the Todmorden Folk Festival Saturday Night Concert at the Unitarian Church on 4th May 2019. Other notable artists will also be offered opportunities during the festival to perform as part of our pop-up programme.

(Tickets will be on sale at the door and all proceeds go towards running the 2019 festival)

£5 entry/£3 concession for OAP’s and under 16’s
