So I’ve entered a songwriting competition – my first!  I’m using the last song from my soon-to-be-released debut album called “Songs from a cold conservatory”. The song called “This time the darkness wins” was inspired by a holiday in Dumfries and Galloway. The competition is called “Talent is Timeless” a website set up to promote the creative efforts of those often overlooked by the music industry the over-50s.

The judges are a stellar bunch of folks including Judy Collins and Ralph McTell who have a thing to teach or two about the art of songwriting!
