Live Music Now Scotland

We’re looking for musicians and ensembles for paid performances in unusual settings – bringing live music of the highest quality to people in the community who can’t easily access concerts. Any style of music is welcome, including classical, traditional, international, rock, pop and jazz, although you must be able to perform without PA.

Musicians should be in the early stages of their professional careers.

Live Music Now was founded in 1977 by violinist Yehudi Menuhin and is the largest music outreach organisation in the UK. It:

  • Supports talented musicians at the start of their professional careers with paid performance opportunities and ongoing training
  • Provides live performances and workshops in venues such as care homes, schools, including those for children with additional support needs, day care centre and rural communities.

    Live Music Now Scotland works with over 100 specially auditioned and trained musicians who deliver over 750 performances and workshops each year across the country.
