Songwriter Contest

The first heat of the 2013 Moville & Greencastle Songwriter Academy Songwriter Contest will take place in Rosatos on Friday, February 22nd.

It waw won last time by Lawrence Hackett of Cork, now living in Derry with his great song When We Do Fall.

It was a fantastic night at the Sean Ti in front of Tony Bramwell, who was one of the judges.

There were some great songs but even some of the other contestants told Lawrence that his was the deserving winner.

When he went up to sing the song again at the end people were singing along with the chorus and had their lighters out.

Moville Talent

It showed that there was some great talent around the area as many of the songs from those from Moville & Greencastle placed highly, including the song of Debbie McDaid & Geraldine Cavanagh, which finished second.

By that stage Debbie and Geraldine hadn’t even played a single gig.

Now they are regulars on the circuit.

Friday night should be a great night.

If anyone has songs that they want to perform get in touch on gerrymclaughlin01@eircom.net or just come along on the night – which starts at 10pm in Rosatos.

The format is that you sing tow originals and two covers.
