SCOTTISH FOLK ARTISTS IN WORLD-FIRST, GLOBAL MUSIC INITIATIVE
Twelve Scottish artists are participating in what is thought to be the world’s largest online musical matchmaking - featuring 96 artists from 14 countries around the globe!
For six weeks across September and October, Scottish music will be on the world’s stage alongside artists from as far afield as Canada, Australia, Taiwan, the USA and throughout Europe.
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.
