Folkstock Festival: Minnie Birch is a true lyricist

20 Aug

I am looking forward to meeting many folk lyricist at Folkstock Festival this September 21st 2013 (  One lyricist that I came across when perusing through the line up is the brilliant Minnie Birch from Hemel Hempstead.  Not only is she a true lyricist, but also she has the most Heavenly female voice that I have ever heard.  When listening to her music it takes me back to when I was a bit younger and I used to listen to Ani DiFranco.  Ani was a liberal woman whose lyrics you actually heard.  And, what I mean when I say ‘heard’ is that you could hear her story and actually understand it.

I feel the same when I hear Minnie Birch’s songs.  I have listened to a few on SoundCloud.  When listening to her music I transform empathetically into a character that she is telling in her story.  In other words, I feel as if I am there.  I can visualise what she might be singing about or going through at the time she wrote her story or lyrics.  What a wonderful, true lyricist Minnie Birch is.  Check her out!

      Thank you! I am looking forward to the actual event coming up next month. I want to take a workshop on song writing/lyric writing. I think I could totally get into that. I’ve got loads of stuff I have written sitting in a desk drawer. Just need to put it out there! Will you be going? Minnie has an amazing voice as well!
