Artist Applications for ECMA, The Visit and English Folk Expo 2019

We have now opened artist applications for several showcasing opportunities in 2019. To simplify the process we have combined applications for three events into a single form. The events are East Coast Music Association (ECMA), the Visit and English Folk Expo. Further information and guidance notes are in the form itself.


Our Aim

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.
