Burnsong is launching a songwriting competition with a difference – it’s for under 25s only.

Burns Unit drummer/producer Mattie Foulds’ Mobile With A Home is looking for young up and coming Scottish songwriters to record their first demo.

“I’m delighted to be supporting three young Scottish songwriters in taking their first steps into the music industry by recording a high quality demo in my new recording studio, Mobile With A Home”, said Foulds.

Anonymous competition entries will be judged by fellow Burns Unit members, Karine Polwart, Emma Pollock, Michael Johnston and Kim Edgar, and a panel of music industry experts including David Scott (Pearlfishers, BMX Bandits) and music industry consultant Ronnie Gurr.

To enter the competition, which runs from Burns Night, 25th January, until 28th Fenruary is open to young people aged 25 and below should go to www.burnsong.org where they can upload up to three entry songs, of any genre, for consideration by the panel of judges.
