Make a Donation

Demand for Live Music Now Scotland’s work always exceeds our ability to meet it, the simple reason for this being our limited resources. Most of the venues where our work takes place cannot cover the full costs so we are reliant on enlightened individuals and other funding partners to enable us to deliver our activity.

I believe passionately in the transformative power of live music, and no charity better exemplifies that power than Live Music Now Scotland. I am delighted to support their important work and help them to deliver amazing live music to people who otherwise would have none.Gavin McEwan

I see live music as something that deserves support because it is an experience that can be shared and gives joy to many.Bryce Morrison

I am happy – indeed, proud – to be identified as an LMNS supporter. Here is why…It is vital to promote young professional musicians at the cusp of their career, giving them much needed performance experience, at the same time bringing live music to people who would otherwise be deprived of it – a wonderful twin objective I am happy to supportUlrike Wilson

Making a Difference...

How LMNS is providing music and opportunities for people across Scotland.

From childhood audience member to talented young musician - a meeting of two LMNS clasarch players.

When our live programme of concerts was cancelled last year, we took our music online instead, with a colourful selection of workshops and performances.

A music residency in an Edinburgh early years centre allows children to develop their language skills through music, dance and percussion.

I really wanted the piece to be interactive. I wanted the audience and the performers to enjoy it, and to give them something to take away.

We'd Love to Hear from You!

We are always happy to discuss new projects, opportunities or ways that we can help make music happen in your venue or community.
