Off to Manchester for English Folk Expo
We will be heading south to Manchester later this week where Scotland will be the 2019 international partner. We will be hosting a reception in the Grand Hall of the Whitworth Gallery featuring performances from Ross Ainslie & Ali Hutton’s Symbiosis, Brìghde Chaimbeul, Gnoss and Talisk. We will also be serving some of Scotland’s finest food and drink.
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.
