    Battle of the Bands
    :ireland: Celtic Connections :scotland:

    Was listening to my playlist this morning and enjoying the sounds of The High Kings; The Corries; Julie Fowlis; Skerryvore; John McDermott; Wild Colonial Bhoys, to name a few.

    So we are talking traditional/folk/Irish/Scottish/diddly di-de di etc.

    This theme is open to a bit of interpretation, so I will leave that up to you. Ultimately, the jury will have their say so don't come crying to me if points are withheld for a dubious choice

    :lenny1:
    Format:

    • Pick one artist, and stick with them throughout.
    • Initial stages will be a league format with top spots proceeding
    • Play Offs for those not quite making the grade.
    Songs:
    • The nature of this type of music means covers will be in there (i.e. more than one artist will have the same song)
    • Once one competitor has chosen a song, any other versions of that song are prohibited for rest of the competition until the Final... sooner you submit, better chance of getting that song (REMOVED 16/03/20- * this rule :101:)
    • No theme for the Group stage, any song from the artist's catalogue will do

    Who da * is in??​

    @Marty McFly i think the list of artists should be updated each time one is picked so as not to waste time.

    I did think about that, but I'd rather not post them too quickly as people will find out who picks whom perhaps?
