Scotland Trending Series

Brand new music series in Scotland, launching 24 May 2021 at Perth Festival of the Arts

Supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland

From Monday 24 to Saturday 29 May 2021, Perth Festival of the Arts will showcase the rising stars in music in Scotland in this brand new cross-genre music series. 

We've selected the best up-and-coming solo artists, bands and ensembles across jazz, indie/rock, folk, electronic music and classical performance. Our online series will broadcast late-night sessions recorded in Perth Theatre Studio over six nights during the Festival. 

With artists including the exuberant jazz-funk-folk collective Fat-Suit, singer-songwriters Beth Malcolm and Angus Munro, alt-rock electronic three-piece Cloth, cellist Hugh Mackay, soprano Lauren McQuistin and one of the most exciting young groups in European Jazz Fergus McCreadie Trio, the line-up is as exciting as it is diverse. 

Here's the line-up so far:

Mon 24 May: Fat-Suit
Tue 25 May: Angus Munro and Beth Malcolm
Wed 26 May: Cloth
Thu 27 May: Cross Trust Artists of the Year
Fri 28 May: Fergus McCreadie Trio
Sat 29 May: Series headliner to be announced 

Support acts include Kate Kyle, Hector Shaw and Sophie Penman via 'Hit The Road/ Scottish Music Centre'.

For £18 (early bird price) you can pick up a pass to the full Scotland Trending series and enjoy a weeklong festival experience of new music being created Scotland. Concerts will be available to view on demand for a further 9 days after broadcast.
