Deadline: Tuesday 29 May 2018

The Traditional Music & Song Association of Scotland (TMSA) is looking for groups of young people aged 18-26 who can organise, promote and lead sessions between August-December 2018 in a local venue.

The musicians will receive support to host approximately ten sessions in their area, as well as a bursary to participate in a one-day training event with leading musicians in the field.

TMSA convener, Fiona Campbell, said: “The Grow Your Own Music Sessions will be acoustic, free and open to all, helping celebrate Scotland’s Year of Young People. The young musicians will be encouraging others, especially other young musicians, singers and, dancers to join in, as we want as many people as possible to experience the fun of traditional music and song across the country.”

The funding has been made available by the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Youth Talent Development Fund, and will be administered by Creative Scotland.
