Young musicians promoting the music scene
Young musicians in Gloucestershire are invited to a new event this week to help them develop and produce music, as well as raise their profile.
The event, which is taken place on Wednesday 11thJanuary at The Cavern, College Street, Gloucester, will take place from 5pm - 6pm.
The event is being led by two young producers and DJs, and is part of a series of regular get-togethers. Dan Kostine and Dan Ackland are also looking to host a special event in March. The event will be a chance for musicians to network with each other and collaborate with others who have come from different music genres.
The young musicians are being supported by The Music WorksOpens new window, a Gloucestershire-based charity which transforms lives through music; and Make Music GloucestershireOpens new window, the county's music education hub.
The event on Wednesday will be focused on plans for the March event, as well as discussions about other ideas for young people and music in Gloucestershire.
Cllr Paul McLain, cabinet member for children and young people at Gloucestershire County Council, said: "This is a great opportunity for young people to take a lead on the music they want to create. Being a successful musician is sometimes being able to work with different genres and who you know, rather than what you know.
"Whether you're a musician interested in making things happen, raising your profile, learning more about the industry, or someone who loves music and wants to help promote it, everyone's welcome."
