Scottish Folk gent James Yorkston releases a limited edition 7″ single of ‘Martinmas Time’ on August 3rd. This is taken from his forthcoming ‘Folk Songs’ album (in collaboration with The Big Eyes Famiy Players) to be released on August 10th on Domino.
Yorkston has sent out blank record sleeves, which the likes of Steve Mason, The Lone Pigeon, King Creosote and The Pictish Trail are already crayola-ing
This is where you come in: James giving his fans the chance to have their words immortalised in vinyl. He is looking for Haikus to be etched into the run out groove on the single.
Send in your poetic efforts based on James Yorkston/Folk Songs/Big Eyes to firstname.lastname@example.org with JY POEM COMP in the subject line. Entries must be received by the 30th June. Winners also get a pair of tickets to this year’s Field Day festival.
