Fantastic feedback from musicians, attendees and supporters of Music in the Community…..why not come join us?!

Richard Bull, Producer, Roddy Hart/Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland

I greatly appreciate the work Music in the Community has done to encourage and promote music, providing a much-needed nurturing and ethical environment for people to enjoy and create music. I always look out for news of events, and listen with great interest to the music that emerges from the project.

''We really enjoyed working with Music in the Community. It's always great to see organisations supporting the local scene, and Music in the Community not only did that by inviting us to play but also created a very welcoming atmosphere. Communication was very clear and respectful and we appreciated that the payment process for our engagement was smooth and transparent. We had a great time at Broomhouse Community Hub, which is a lovely community centre and excellent venue and are grateful for the continued support via our social media. We recommend you check them out!'' Coma Cat

"We received a great number of musicians to browse in order to find some suitable music for our dementia friendly community cafe.  Larisa was very helpful in trying to find us the most appropriate style and we've already welcomed a duo who went down a storm.  They were perfect and really created a great vibe for the community.  We had twice the numbers show up to hear them and everyone really enjoyed it.  We've since booked them again and have another recommended group lined up.  This has been a very valuable source for finding and bringing entertainment to those who would otherwise miss out and we're extremely grateful"

"If you are a local musician, you should really check out what Music in the Community are doing. I have never felt so well supported before, during and after a gig... I really felt valued.

I played at one of their regular live music events hosted at Four Square Park Cafe in Saughton Park on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Lots of people sat inside or out, chatting with family and friends, enjoying some food and drinks with chilled, live music floating through the air.

Music in the Community even provided me with loads of photos and some recordings I could use on social media. Here's how it looked...

Many thanks to Music in the Community !"
