Thanks to all who have tuned in to watch our #TogetheratHomeLMNS concerts so far!
We’ve been enjoying reading your comments online and thanks to those who have shared photos of children singing along at home. So far the videos have been watched across Scotland and the UK, as well as in America, Canada, Germany and France. We’ve been sending the YouTube videos to the care homes where our musicians normally perform and have been touched to hear that the residents are enjoying the music in this new way.
To catch up on the brand new concerts we have premiered over the past two weeks, please head over to our YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/livemusicnowscotland

Live Music Now Scotland will continue to 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!
Following the cancellation of many concerts, Live Music Now Scotland was keen to find alternative ways of sharing music in the community. 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 came up with a solution: pre-recorded and live concerts, direct from the artists’ homes that we can share with care homes, arts venues and nurseries. Or straight into the living rooms or mobile phones of our supporters.
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.
