Enjoy a relaxed hour of music from some of Scotland’s most talented young professional musicians, followed by a cup of tea and a chance to meet the artists
Live Music Now Scotland is proud to present an exciting new programme of informal concerts in partnership with The Old Kirk in Kirkcaldy.
“We’re delighted to be starting a new series of concerts at the end of this month in Fife,” says Live Music Now Scotland Director, Carol Main MBE. “We want to make live music accessible with as few barriers as possible so there is no charge and all are welcome.”
“The Tea and Tunes series is very much about giving older people, including those with dementia related illness and their carers and families, access to high quality live music in an informal and relaxed setting. We’ll be introducing audiences to four duos on our roster that we’re very proud of; Amy Strachan and Daniel Silcock, Penny James and Matt Tighe, TWOgether Duo and Roo and Neil. There is a mix of classical music and traditional Scottish music over four afternoon performances in the Autumn and Winter, with the last concert themed around St Andrew’s Day.”
‘Tea and Tunes’ is an opportunity to enjoy a relaxed and informal hour of music from some of Scotland’s most talented young professional musicians, followed by the chance to meet the artists over a cup of tea after the performance.
“We hope that these more relaxed events will suit some of our audience members who could find a longer, more formal situation a little stressful or off-putting – but all are very welcome to hear this first class music!”, says Rosemary Potter of The Old Kirk, where the concerts are taking place.
The concerts are funded by the Stafford Trust but donations are welcome.
