Showcase Scotland Expo is concerned with delivering a strategic approach to providing the maximum public benefit to Scotland by supporting and developing artists from Scotland.
This will offer public benefit culturally, artistically, socially and economically and strengthens the cultural environment of Scotland. Showcase Scotland Expo is supported by Creative Scotland and PRS for Music Foundation
We are off to Kansas City, Missouri for Folk Alliance International’s annual conference in the grand company of Breabach, Elephant Sessions, Fara, RURA, Skerryvore and Talisk. We will be hosting a reception featuring Scottish food and whisky of course at 5.30pm on Friday 16th February in the Century C ballroom. This will be followed by an official showcase concert featuring all 6 artists. The next day we will be taking over Room 539 for Showcase Scotland Saturday where these acts will be joined by the equally brilliant Findlay Napier and Jarlath Henderson.
Our aim is to further the live export opportunities for Scottish based artists working in the genres of folk, traditional, Scots, Gaelic, world and acoustic music. We aim to forge relationships with overseas music trade events and to lobby for showcase opportunities for Scottish based artists.
We also produce The Visit an inward bound mission for the overseas music industry, which targets industry from key territories to visit Scotland to see if our best musicians perform and meet the wider Scottish music industry.
