L2F 20 Songwriting Challenge

Venue: Online

Tuesday 29 September 2020 - Saturday 31 October 2020

Sadly, we’ve had to cancel L2F – Lichfield Festival of Folk for 2020, but we’re pleased to say that we have introduced the 2020 Songwriting Challenge.

Following on from the previous Songwriting Competitions, we challenged songwriters to create a song that explored aspects of the theme of ‘Lockdown to Freedom’. We invited creations from both new and established artists to interpret that theme and submit their material. We are delighted to be able to share the entries with you and we hope you enjoy.
