Young Hereford musicians invited to sign up for Livewire project
11:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
THROUGHOUT this year, a team of Music Pool artists have been developing Livewire, a project which forms a supportive social network for young people aged between 12 and 25 who are interested in music, and a non-competitive environment in which they can create original music and showcase their talents.
Every week at Hereford’s Castle Green Pavilion, the Livewire team delivers two workshops in band development, songwriting, hip hop and music production, as well as three week-long development projects covering all styles of music.
These sessions prepare young people to take part in a network of gigs which over the course of a year have included Hereford College of Arts, the Jailhouse night club and Nozstock festival.
The third and final development week of the year takes place in half term from October 28 to November 1, with gigs at the Jailhouse and then busking opportunities at Herefordshire Flavours Food festival on November 2 and 3.
There are still plenty of spaces to take part in the development programme and booking forms can be downloaded from the Music Pool website at musicpool.org.uk or email email@example.com.
For further information, call Nicky on 01432 278 118. Existing bands can apply to play at the Livewire gig by sending an MP3 or video of their music to firstname.lastname@example.org Limited spaces are available and slots will be awarded to the most prepared and original acts.
