Congratulations to Barry McLoughlin of Northern Ontario, Canada for winning Folk Alley’s May Open Mic contest! Barry’s 5th Avenue – “a song contemplating forbidden love”- received 153 votes for our inaugural monthly contest. You’ll hear his song in the stream next week, but you can also listen, on-demand, by going to Barry’s Open Mic page.
Congratulations also go out to our two runners-up for the month. In second place, Liam’s Wake with the song Passengerside, and third was Jim Pipkin for Tommyknockers! Barry, Liam and Jim will all be entered into another contest in August for a chance to appear at the 40th Kent State Folk Festival in November.
June’s Open Mic contest begins Friday, June 2 with a fresh new batch of 10 songs!
