-TARTAN WEEK 2007
The project aims to attract and engage a younger multi-cultural audience to Tartan Week helping to broaden the appeal of contemporary Scottish arts and music in the USA, and New York in particular.
We intend to stage a unique multi media event, showcasing contemporary Scottish music talent at a prestigious New York Venue “THE KNITTING FACTORY” .
The project will premiere in New York during Tartan Week 2007,and will be a unique collaboration of music,animation and educational initiatives.The events will be broadcast live in conjunction with New York Radio stations Sirius, BBC Scotland, and XFM Scotland, and will be given considerable media attention both in Scotland and the USA.
One of the highlights of the event will be the placing of traditional music alongside world music recorded both in the USA and in Scotland, and the introduction of IT graphics by both Scottish college students,and schoolchildren which will compliment the music.
New Scotland /New York will compliment Tartan Week adding a coordinated and dedicated specialist music aspect to the week. It will reach its core audience by working with local,national and internternational media, raising the profile of Scotland as a new and creative force in world music..
