Welcome to the blog of the Portland Maine Carol Slam.
What is a carol slam? It’s like a poetry slam or story slam, but for carols. Composers will write original carols. A house choir will perform them for a cafe audience (you!). The audience will pick the best carol. The winning composer will get a wreath.
The goal is to inspire new holiday carols, as an antidote to the same old stuff every year.
The first ever Portland Carol Slam will take place on Saturday, December 22nd, 2012 at 3:30pm, at Bull Feeney’s in Portland’s Old Port.
