For more than 25 years the Milkmaid Folk Club has delivered memorable performances by folk artists of all levels. The annual songwriting competition was introduced 10 years ago to provide a platform for folk songwriters to showcase their compositions. That has now extended into a series of workshops and a songwriter's circle.
