Live Music Now Scotland continues bring the joy of music into people’s lives, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Together at Home series is a programme of brand new concerts, recorded especially for sharing with our longstanding audiences, whether that’s older people in care homes, children in school or nursery, or people on lockdown in every one of Scotland’s 32 local authorities. And now even further beyond!

Live Music Now Scotland was keen to find alternative ways of sharing music in the community during the Covid-19 lockdown. Music is more vital than ever in these uncertain times, providing a way to take our minds off the current realities that are unfolding and lift us out of the stress and worries of daily life. It was also crucial that we found a means of financially supporting our 118 emerging artists during a difficult time and ensuring their work remained accessible.

We have commissioned a special series of videos, recorded in living rooms around Scotland – or wherever our artists are on lockdown – that will be available to view on YouTube for a limited time. Here are some dates for your diary, please join us on Facebook to share some wonderful music Together at Home.
