Live Music Now North East Auditions – Application Deadline 18th April 2018

“Through LMN I have learned more about myself as a person and as a musician. My skills as both a workshop leader and a musician have developed to a very high degree. Before LMN I didn’t know how music could really affect people and I’m so honoured to have been a small part of positively affecting so many people’s lives!”

Katie Patterson, Katie’s All Sorts.


Live Music Now is looking for new musicians to join our North East branch. We are seeking musicians based in the North East, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the East Midlands from Classical, World, Jazz, Folk and Rock & Pop genres. LMN offers paid performance opportunities and training to musicians at the start of their professional careers, enabling them to engage with a wide variety of audiences.

We’re looking for outstanding artists who want to develop themselves professionally, and who have that spark and passion to share their music with a wider audience including older people in care homes, children with special educational needs, and other vulnerable groups. Help us spread the word! Download the auditions poster here.
