A landmark festival of international live music for children aged four to eighteen kicks off on 1 November. Love Music presents an exotic programme of performances, from throat singing and beatboxing, to funky bluegrass and jazz-infused Balkan klezmer.

Love Music is designed to encourage musical curiosity and experimentation, helping young people to explore and expand the breadth of their musical knowledge.

Supported by £480,000 of National Lottery investment, through Creative Scotland’s Inspire fund, the festival will tour nationally throughout Scotland, visiting the Borders, East Ayrshire, Glasgow, Fife, Shetland, Aberdeenshire, the Highlands and the Western Isles.

As well as performances taking place across the country, the Love Music website offers a range of online music resources for young people, teachers and the wider public to inform and excite their curiosity.  The Love Music festival Jukebox allows listeners to rate and tag tracks and to learn more about the music that has inspired them. A wide range of free music resources are also hosted on this site and by Love Music Festival’s education partner, Glow

Venu Dhupa Director of Creative Development for Creative Scotland said ‘Love Music Festival is a brilliant project, led by the unstoppable Stephen Deazley. Introducing new and exotic sounds to young people at the time their musical appetites are developing, in communities from the Borders to the Western Isles, is a fantastic way to develop audiences and the next generation of musicians. The inspiring programme and the resources that are offered alongside the festival allow students and parents alike to explore new, exciting and inspiring music’

The Festival has been conceived and curated by Northern Irish-born composer and renowned educationalist Stephen Deazley, and is produced by the organisation Music at the Brewhouse.

Artists include Jonny Axelsson (Sweden), Creaking Tree String Quartet (Canada), Eva Quartet (Bulgaria), Hobbit (UK), Huun Huur Tu (Tuva), Sokobauno with Sarah Kenchington (UK), Kolektif Istanbul (Turkey), Trio pour un p’tit pois (France), Mamadou Diabate (Mali) Oren Marshall & The Charming Transport Band (UK) and Sväng (Finland).
