Keep Music aBroad: a Music Exchange Project that Truly Crosses Boundaries
Written by Manager on 26th January 2019
Created by company Keep Music aLive, the project ‘Keep Music aBroad’ sets out to provide both Scottish and Italian artists with the opportunity to tour in the opposite country through a series of judged performances.
The first of three selection gigs took place in Glasgow’s Audio last night, with the lineup including indie outfit Tomorrow’s Problem, jazz songwriter Gordon Robertson, Stranded Astronaut and the soulful Gasbin Bapeer.
The gig was a lively nod to Glasgow’s rich culture, with each act bringing their own distinct sound and personality to the stage.
For Bapeer, a singer-songwriter from Kirkintilloch, the event was an opportunity to be part of a more diverse lineup from the local music scene.
“Nothing changes if you’re comfortable. You’ve got to be meeting different people that you haven’t met before, there might be an opportunity in that.”
With the city recently being branded as the capital of punk by NME, these gigs are another exciting movement in Glasgow’s ever-expanding music scene.
To catch the next selection gig and hear interviews with the acts, stay tuned on Radio Caley for all of the updates.
