Midland Songwriter Concert announced midland songwriter showcase poster for 2007It’s the time of year again, folks!

The 2007 Midland Songwriter Night is set for the end of this month, 29th of April here in Athlone.

I spent a good deal of time last week ringing around to this year’s songwriters and updating the website. I discovered that my mobile phone records, so I was even able to record my interviews with the lads and put the mp3 interviews up on the artist pages. Given my recent experience in teaching songwriting, I asked a few pointed questions about the artists’ songwriting processes. I was really surprised at how differently they all approached their compositions.

On the bill this year is Agitated Radio Pilot (Dave Colohan), Jimi Cullen, Declan Finneran, Fiachra Milner and The Martin Staunton Band.

In any case, the madness begins, folks! This year is going to be SO good – the lads playing are very, very good. We may even have a surprise guest performer on the night . . . watch this space!

Actually, just check Allllriiiight!
