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
The Expo team have been putting in the miles since we finished The Visit way back in August. We have been to Milwaukee Irish Festival, Folk Music Ontario (with Elephant Sessions and Skerryvore), La Fira Mediterrania, English Folk Expo and are finishing off the conference season at Womex in Gran Canaria. We look forward to announcing our 2019 projects soon. Watch this space.
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.
