On 27th April 2019 the Seagull Theatre in association with Martello Promotions will be hosting “Pakefield Acoustic Music Day”, featuring a wide range of top acoustic based artists from across the UK.
They are offering the chance for local musicians to play a part in the event via a free to enter competition to be held on Sunday 10th February 2019, when they will be holding auditions to be judged by representatives of the theatre and the promoter. The prize will be the opportunity to open the event on 27th April.
The competition is open to any solo artists or duos resident in the Waveney District who are at least 16 years old and who perform (preferably original) songs and/or tunes on acoustic instruments, whether it be folk, blues or Americana.
Theatre Manager Karen Read said, “This is a great opportunity to both get your music heard and to share a bill with some of the best musicians working in the UK today in the field of acoustic music.”
Apart from the event on 27th April, Martello Promotions will also be bringing many other top artists from the UK, USA and Canada to the Seagull Theatre in 2019. Promoter Martin Lovett said “There may well be other opportunities for entrants in the competition to have support slots, if the judges consider that the standard is high enough.”
