Hi Everyone in Folk Tas,
Thanks to all who participated in and made happen the 2021 Mike Silverwood Song and Tune awards. A great night of sharing songs and tunes and celebrating creativity and originality in song with some terrific themes, reflecting a diverse range of reflections on life in Tasmania.
Highlight was everyone spontaneously singing Aimee Butlers’s “Anthem to Tasmania” – ably conducted by our MC David Mac.
Judging particularly difficult but winners this year were…
Isabel Rumble – for Song – Warm Wind
Emily Wolfe – for tune – Flying Fox
u-19 Will Squires for song – Tracing Time
u-19 Gabby Cousins for song – Edge of the Universe
Once again thanks to all who participated on the night and made their contributions.
Peter Hicks, 2021 Co-ordinator.
