Transforming Communities

Calling all musicians in Kent!

Live Music Now is recruiting exceptional professional musicians who live in or have a strong connection to Medway and the surrounding areas of Kent.

  • Applications are open here and recruitment workshops will be held in Chatham in December 2022.

  • The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 14th November 2022.

Live Music Now musicians work flexibly in a wide range of community and public settings including special schools, care homes and hospitals. They give performances and lead workshops which make a huge difference to individual lives. Live Music Now supports musicians through regular training and mentoring and offers payment and expenses in line with Musicians’ Union rates.

We are looking for professional performers who are excellent musicians and have a passion for sharing their music with others. Applications are welcome from a broad range of genres – Beatboxing to Bhangra, Funk to Folk, Classical to Contemporary Jazz and much more. You could be a solo singer-songwriter or an ensemble of up to five. We particularly welcome applications from culturally diverse or disabled professional musicians.

Here’s what some of our musicians say about working for Live Music Now:

“Live Music Now has made me a much more sympathetic musician. I’ve built a real toolkit of experiences that help me play reactively [and] assess where my music connects.”

“Live Music Now has provided a vital lifeline both financially and creatively during this last year.” 

“Live Music Now was a defining and life changing experience for me. Still some of the happiest experiences I have ever had.”

Successful applicants will be invited to take part in a recruitment workshop on one of the following dates:

  • Chatham – 6th December,  2-6pm

  • Chatham- 8th December,  9am -1pm
