There’s just two weeks to go to enter the Rock the House 2015 competition!
This year’s event is taking place at Glasgow's stunning Òran Mór on Sunday 8th March 2015. As always, this fantastic event provides the Scottish creative community with a vehicle through which to gain exposure while communicating issues to legislators, as well as providing a means for the Scottish creative industry to highlight the importance of protecting its intellectual property rights.
I'm proud to invite nominations from within South Edinburgh, to be considered for the best live band and best live music venue awards of the first ever parliamentary Rock the House competition.
Rock the House is a terrific initiative and an accessible vehicle through which to capture the imagination of the public and legislators in recognition of the need to support and promote the live music sector. It aims to promote the intellectual property rights of unsigned and up and coming musicians; and highlight the importance of live music venues to local communities. It gives a real chance for local artists to showcase their talent and get a foothold in an industry that for live acts is becoming increasing difficult to break into.
Any band or live music venue can enter the competition by sending fully completed submissions to me at 31 Minto Street, EH9 2BR or at firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st of December 2014.
