Music social and seminar purveyors Born To Be Wide have announced its second Off The Record day, following the event’s launch last October.
Kirkcaldy’s Adam Smith Theatre will host the series of workshops for young musicians and those interested in working in the music business – on Saturday 8 February.
Supported by the Scottish Government’s Youth Music Initiative (YMI), which is administered by Creative Scotland, Off The Record is open to anyone aged between 14-25.
Speakers at the Kirkcaldy event include: Ally McCrae (BBC Radio One), Olaf Furniss (Born To Be Wide Director/The Scotsman), Michael Lambert (Born To Be Wide Director/artist manager), Lloyd Meredith (Olive Grove Records/Peenko Blog), Fielding Hope (DJ & booker, Nice’N’Sleazy), Tallah Brash (musician & booker, Electric Circus), Stuart Stenhouse (EmuBands) and Garry Boyle (The Depot Studios), as well as Stuart Stenhouse of EmuBands – the online distributor will be donating a free release via the service, worth £24.95.
Admission is £2, which includes lunch, with tickets available in advance either from www.offtherecord.me or in person from the Adam Smith box office. (A parental consent form is also required from attendees under the age of 18 and can be downloaded from the website.)
