This is a wee post to give you some information about this great new project!!
Scotland Sings exists to get people from across Scotland, including new and existing singers...to sing. We are looking for groups, bands, choirs and anyone who sings to get involved!
If you already have planned performances we would love to know about them, so you can promote your own events via Hands Up for Trad's website:
Dates for your diary:
We are holding a glow meet at 2pm, where Ewan Robertson and Megan Henderson will be teaching children Scottish and Gaelic songs.
Schools participation, to get children of all ages involved in singing.
Public performances from choirs, bands, groups and solo performers, from all over Scotland.
Church and faith groups
Most Scotland Sings events will take place over the St Andrew's weekend but additional singing events taking place outwith these dates can also be included as part of Scotland Sings promotion!
A full marketing kit will be available to help you promote your event. Marketing materials, including posters and flyers will be sent out, and Hands Up for Trad can provide regional songs for you to use as part of your repertoire.
Scotland Sings events will receive extensive media coverage as part of our marketing plan!
We now have a section on our website, with Scots songs for children.
Perhaps you'd like to put up a picture of a past gig, or a video link and let everyone know about your existing projects and the Scotland Sings events you're planning on the Scotland Sings facebook page?
Choirs and singers from all over Scotland are getting involved including:
National Museum of Scotland - Gaelic choral performances from five fantastic choirs!!
Royal National MOD - Paisley Town Hall.
Horsecross Arts - Gaelic in the city project, Perth Concert Hall.
Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh - A day of Scottish traditional song with training on how to lead and enable music and song activities in schools and community learning.
