Late on Saturday night 2 weeks ago I got this amazing e-mail:
“We would love to invite you to play our stage, which will be recorded for later broadcast across one or more of the following BBC Radio Networks including BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC 6 Music and the 36 BBC Introducing local shows across the UK. We will have numerous presenters join us across the weekend to introduce all the acts onto stage including BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris, Lopa Kothari from Radio 3’s World on 3, Max Reinhardt from Radio 3’s the Late Junction and more.
BBC Introducing supports new musicians at the BBC and we have stages across the major festivals in the UK. We would be delighted if Vincent Burke could perform at our BBC Introducing stage at Latitude Festival in July.
Date: Saturday 16th July
Stage: BBC Introducing’s Lavish Lounge, In the Woods
Set length: 25 mins”
Ok so 2 weeks later it’s announced, I’ve got the set together and had a haircut, so nerves aside, I’m ready to go!
Here’s a link to the stage with some stuff about me if you click on it:-)
Thanks for the friends who came round last night for a set preview and said nice things. I’ll let you know how it went and if you do know anyone who’s going would be great to see them there, let them know!
