BBC Radio Lincolnshire will host its annual Song for Lincolnshire competition on November 2nd in Spalding and topping the bill this year will be The Young’uns from Teesside.
The trio will perform at the South Holland Centre alongside a host of local musicians including local duo Ben Smith and Jimmy Brewer, who have recently returned from performing in Nashville.
The songwriting contest, which is in its 23rd year, invites musicians from the county and beyond to write their own song which must be about Lincolnshire. Through to the finals this year are Geoff Convery & Jim Hancock, Paul Dickinson, Kim Biggs, Salutation, Ashley Groombridge & Angela King, Homity, Steve & Julie Wigley and Penny Sykes.
The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenter Jono Brine and will raise money for BBC Children in Need.
“It’s really exciting to bring Song for Lincolnshire to Spalding,” explains Jono. “We have some fantastic songs that have been entered this year and we can’t wait to have The Young‘uns performing in the town.”
The event will take place on Thursday 2nd November from 7pm and will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. Tickets are free and available from The South Holland Centre.
