If you don’t recall the madness of UnConvention Belfast or even the original Un-Convention Event back in October 2008, it’s a music conference aimed specifically at the grass roots of the music industry – bands, labels, publishers, distributors (yay!) and new music businesses gather for education, inspiration and cake. Or pies.
Have a listen to listen to the mighty Tom Robinson’s BBC Un-Convention Special (BBC iPlayer) –http://bit.ly/8s05S or check this Spotify playlist for a taster of some of the amazing talent that’ll be playing over the weekend.
Penny’ll be represented by attendees Tom McShane and Amy McGarrigle, the creative force behind a collaborative musical effort between Penny Distribution, Big Sky Studios & Volte Face Records. Rich Dale, founder of Volte Face and bassist of indie rock band Escape Act, will be speaking in more detail on the project at the first of Saturday’s panels, “Bands as Enterprise”.
I’ll be updating the blog daily so keep it right here…
