Twin Atlantic, Be Charlotte, The Snuts and more confirmed for 30 May live stream raising funds for Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and ViseUp
Talented artists from all over Scotland will join together on Sat 30 May to help raise funds for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and Glasgow-based PPE charity ViseUp. Stream4Scotland, a ten-hour live streamed event will take place from 3pm–1am and will feature performances, Q&A sessions and chats from over 40 Scottish musicians and DJs along with host Garry Spence.
Nordoff Robbins is the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to enriching the lives of people affected by life limiting illness, isolation or disability. ViseUp was set up in March 2020 in response to the urgent demand for PPE from key workers at the frontline of the COVID emergency.
Scotland's largest music platform TENEMENT TV will take the reins of Stream4Scotland from 3–6pm to feature breakthrough Scottish artists including Aaron Smith, Be Charlotte, Declan Welsh, Honeyblood, Rascalton, The Van T's, VanIves and more.
Garry Spence will host performances, Q&As and chats from 6–9pm with stars including Twin Atlantic, Dougie MacLean, The Fratellis, Kyle Falconer, The Snuts, Wet Wet Wet and more. Included will be an interview with Clare Grogan plus a chat with Dougie MacLean about writing the legendary 'Caledonia.'
Finally, Glasgow's Sub Club and SWG3 will takeover and provide lockdown entertainment from 9pm–1am, kicking off with legendary house music DJ, Graeme Park.
Nordoff Robbins CEO Sandra Schembri said: 'Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy has long benefitted from the support of the Scottish music industry through the annual Scottish Music Awards, so we're grateful they're continuing to support us during the lockdown. Music is so important to people right now and we hope Stream4Scotland will help in uniting people for a moment through the power of music, as now more than ever people need to feel a sense of community. Our thanks to all that log on and to some of Scotland's most exciting musical talent, for helping raise vital funds for us to continue to support some of the most vulnerable and isolated members of our communities through our music therapy.'
David Miller, Director of the Innovation School at Kelvinside who has spearheaded the ViseUp campaign, said: 'Medical and care staff are heroes who still find themselves on the front-line of this crisis. While requests come in from across every healthcare sector in Scotland, we will continue doing what we can to help in these unbelievably challenging times.'
