Help Musicians Scotland has revealed the full Rooted In Scotland series featuring country-wide events in celebration of the charity’s Scottish launch. With fundraising gigs, talks and advice sessions covering subjects such as mental health and how to break into the industry, the Rooted In Scotland events take place in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Dumfries and Perth between January 31 - February 2. The series gets underway with the launch of the Music Business School in Glasgow on January 31 offering attendees the chance to hear from industry specialists including BBC, Nude Records and Music Glue.
The heart of the launch is the Rooted In Scotland gig headlined by Scottish heroes Idlewild with initial ticket allocation selling out in less than two hours last week. The launch gig, which will see Idlewild make a return to King Tut’s in Glasgow for the first time in a decade, also features performances from Scottish musicians Be Charlotte, Indigo Velvet and SKJØR, all who have been directly supported by HMScotland in the past.
Everyone is invited to participate in the Rooted In Scotland events programme from music fans, creatives, volunteers, fundraisers, donors or those who simply want to hear more about HMScotland. The more people that get involved, the more we can do to ensure a thriving musical landscape across the nation. All the money raised at these events will be reinvested in Scotland. Ensuring HMScotland can provide bespoke programmes of support, advice and campaigns including health and welfare and career support grants.
