You can hear the best of the next generation of Bute musical talent at the #RothesayLive launch event this Sunday, September 27 - part of the Rothesay Pavilion’s Closing Weekend Festival.

One of the major new uses for the Pavilion when it reopens in 2017 will be as a performing and recording space for younger musicians, both from Bute and beyond, and the #RothesayLive launch event on Sunday will give members of the public a chance to see - and hear - some of the artists who just might be involved when the refurbished building opens its doors.

Sunday’s gig - which takes place between 1pm and 3pm - is the start of a ten-month project to help support, nurture and develop music for young people on the island, and Sunday’s showcase will feature artists such as Layla A Templeton, Daniel Sweet, The Red Hearted Vines, Beth Swan and The Hideout alongside more experienced performers like Anabrese.

One of the aims of the #RothesayLive project is to create more opportunities for young people to play and to perform their music in a variety of settings, and there will be more live shows coming soon.
