Do you have students or know any keen musicians aged 14 and 18 and into folk music? Would they like to be part of the Cambridge Folk Festival? They could win the chance to perform with The Hub Band Project live in the Club Tent on Sunday 30th July 2017!
The Hub Band Project is a series of workshops at The Hub youth music area, where participants will collaborate with other musicians, culminating in a performance by The Hub Band on stage in the Club Tent on the Sunday evening of the festival. It is aimed at those into traditional music (either individuals or bands) who have already bought tickets for the Festival, plus we have a limited number of free tickets to offer.
We particularly want to hear from instrumentalists, those who love playing in sessions and have a passion for traditional songs and tunes, to take part in The Hub Band Project.
To apply for free tickets for the project, musicians need to upload 3 representative tracks to SoundCloud and send a link, together with information about themselves, including their age, by midday Monday 22nd May 2017 to Hannah.Bright@cambridgelivetrust.co.uk
Don’t forget to include contact details including address, phone number and email. SoundClouds can be made private for our ears only if so wished.
Ticket winners will be selected according to the strength and suitability of their music by a panel of music industry professionals. Applicants will be notified by Friday 2nd June 2017 if their submission has been successful.
Under 18’s will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Weekend passes for ticket winners (including camping at Coldham’s Common) will be sent out by the first week in July.
IMPORTANT: These tickets are extremely limited. If any young musician wishes to attend the Festival and take part in The Hub Band project regardless of whether they win free tickets or not, they should buy them in the normal manner while on sale, before they sell out. For more info, contact Hannah.Bright@cambridgelivetrust.co.uk
If you know any 14 - 18 year old's who might like this opportunity, please pass on this information and encourage them to apply!
