More money for music programme
BRISTOL music lovers are set to benefit in 2013 after a programme to develop regional artists has been given repeat funding.
Routes South West run by Bristol Music Trust and Colston Hall was awarded the money from Arts Council England.
It will work with a network of music venues, promoters, producers and artists to develop and tour a variety of folk, jazz, roots, electronica and experimental music across the region, concentrating in areas that currently see little touring music provision.
Previous touring projects supported by the scheme included concerts from Philip Henry and Hannah Martin, who recently won a South West Music award, Scottish Celtic folk band Rua Macmillian Trio, kora virtuoso Seckou Keita and Trembling Bells with Bonnie Prince Billy.

The scheme will work across all areas of the music business to enable exciting and innovative tours to take place. For venues and promoters, Routes South West will support their professional development through training days looking at audience development, marketing and pitching skills.
It will also work with new and emerging musicians and provide funding of up to £6,000 to deliver two-three regional tours per year. Alongside this work the Bristol Music Trust is working with the South West Music School to deliver a training and mentoring programme for five South West based artists.
