Compose a tune for Paisley

Published: 11 Jan 2012

Mod Phaislig & Voices in Paisley are offering an exciting opportunity to compose the tune ‘Paisley welcomes the Royal National Mod 2013’ which will celebrate the historic visit of the renowned Gaelic festival to the town in 2013. As their contribution to Wevint Musical Threads, the arts extravaganza which takes place across Renfrewshire on 3 & 4 March, the Mod Phaislig 2013 team have combined with Voices in Paisley to host this competition, with the winner being unveiled on Saturday 3 March when a number of Gaelic choirs will perform in the town as part of the celebrations.

In order to enter the competition, email or post a manuscript of your composition to the Mod Phaislig team. Do not put your name on the manuscript as the judging will be anonymous. It would be useful if entrants could also submit some audio of the tune being played, although this is not essential. In addition to the manuscript, a covering letter is required with full contact details, as well as any information you feel is necessary. E-mail entries to modphaislig2013@yahoo.co.uk or post to Mod Phaislig 2013, 12 Ben Nevis Road, Paisley, PA2 7LA by 8 February. If you have any queries contact Ealasaid MacDonald on 07535514385.

In addition to having the honour of their tune being the soundtrack to the Mod Phaislig celebrations, the winner will receive a cheque for £150. Judging the competition to the final two are three stalwards of traditional music, Duncan Nicholson, Pipe Major of Strathclyde Police Pipe Band, Brian Laurie of the Brian Laurie Accordion Music School and Andrew Gifford of the renowned band Fiddler’s Bid. It will be the audience at the Gaelic Choirs event on 3 March that will make the final decision.
