Venues & Communities

Whether communities of place, including urban, island and rural, or communities of people, such as those living with dementia or in social isolation, Live Music Now Scotland can support local authorities and groups in inspiring, enriching and transforming people’s lives through music.

In accordance with Scotland’s Culture Strategy – A Culture Strategy for Scotland – Live Music Now Scotland is very aware of its unique role in bringing music to communities throughout the country. As Yehudi Menuhin said in founding Live Music Now, ‘It has been my dream to bring live music back into the everyday lives of people of all ages…in those places where most of us spend our time, where we work, study, suffer or celebrate, be it in office or factory, school or prison, parish hall or church.’
