Saturday 25 August, 17:00-18:00, Debating Chamber, £4.00/£2.50
In association with Born to be Wide
In an age when music is commonly available via the internet and CD sales are declining, this event will explore what this means for the future of the industry and asks what it means for future generations of musicians. What can we learn from countries such as Norway and Canada? Join panellists including Scott Cohen, founder The Orchard; Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit; Caroline Gorman, Rage Music and the Scottish Music Industry Association; Olaf Furniss, Born to be Wide; John Preston, former Chairman of BMG (Sony) and the British Phonographic Industry; and Inger Dirdal, Music Export Norway in a lively discussion on the future of the music industry in Scotland. Chaired by the Deputy Presiding Officer Elaine Smith MSP.
