The entries will be whittled down to ten finalists who will compete on
Friday 19th November.

Each finalist will play a warm up song in the first half of the evening, and then perform their competition entry before three celebrity judges in the second half.
After a short break, the winner and runner up will be announced!

The club is usually packed and comments from the audience include compliments on the slick organisation of the final as well as the friendly atmosphere with some visiting the club for the first time. One comment in our visitors’ book read ‘very enjoyable evening- the best folk club I have seen for many a long year!’
The competition is now a firmly established feature in the Folk calendar and many of the songs have entered the Folk canon.

Songs may be submitted by two methods:

  1. Either on CD with artist/artists’ names and song title written on it by mail with accompanying entry form and lyrics to:
    Watford Folk Club Song Competition 2021
    6 Avon Close

  2. Or a digital audio recording, (MP3/WAV/AIFF format or similar) plus attached entry form and lyrics by email to: watfordfolkclub@outlook.com quoting “Watford Folk Club Song Competition 2021” in the subject box.

With less than a month to go ,we look forward to receiving your entries
