Here and Now – New Music on Broadcasting Scotland
Join Katee Kross and guests every Wednesday at 8:00 PM for Here and Now and meet the best up and coming musicians in Scotland.
Scotland has always had a vibrant grass roots music scene, which has proven itself over generations to be the catalyst which has sparked life into the careers of some of the world’s best known and most famous artists. Over the years, the record industry has changed, but people still play and listen to music, however, while the ability to produce music has never been easier technically, the opportunity to get yourself noticed in a very talented crowd gets harder.
Here and Now is about creating just that opportunity. Every week, Bishopbriggs singer/songwriter, Katee Kross will seek out the most talented, up and coming musicians in Scotland, and bring them to you screens. Every week, Katee will bring you the latest on the music scene in Scotland and let you know where to see and hear the artists who catch your attention.
You can also let us know the artists you think we should feature by tweeting to us with the hash-tag #hereandnow.
