Schools song festival

“I personally would advise all musicians and artists, of all ages, to wake up to what is happening in the world and address it in their work. Record companies may tell artists it will damage their career, but I think in the big picture the opposite is true. If artists don’t try and address serious issues at all, we are all, including the record companies, in danger of becoming a bit redundant. Pop music at its best has always had at least a bit of a connection to the social revolution.”

Are you a young musician, singer or poet who is at school or a member of a youth club or project.

Do you have a passion for justice and/or something you need to say?

In 2015, STUC will be holding its third schools songs showcase event. It will be bigger and more exciting than ever before.

We are inviting young musicians, working with their school music department and youth projects to submit entries which will be showcased at a special event in 2015. You might even be invited to perform at one of STUC’s many events and conferences throughout the year.
