Upcoming public performances in Scotland


In addition to the many community settings in which Live Music Now Scotland musicians perform, we also work in partnership with many public venues, festivals and other organisations, both in Scotland and internationally, providing musicians with specially tailored programmes at themed and seasonal festivals, concert halls, museums and galleries and at special events, whether public or private for specific occasions.

We are open to all ideas to bring new audiences to a wide range of public venues, whether people with dementia enjoying a social event, or for a family audience with young children. To discuss an idea please contact Live Music Now Scotland on 0131 332 6356 or email scotland@livemusicnow.org.uk.

To experience a Live Music Now Scotland performance at first hand, why not come along to one of our upcoming events listed below?
