Burnsong patron Midge Ure explained that ‘Burnsong, in the spirit of Burns is to nurture aspiring young songwriters’ and ‘Songs are the lifeblood of the industry’, without them the music industry is stagnant.
The songwriting workshop, will be led by Robert Maitland, who recently completed his Masters in Songwriting & Performance at UWS Ayr and Rebecca Wallace (currently studying at UWS Ayr). Both Robert and Becci participated in this years ‘Gathering’ run by Burnsong in collaboration with the UK Songwriting Festival.
