Tune in to CalMac Culture Music 2016

Ferry operator CalMac is again looking for the best in new Scottish talent to play a set at some of the country's biggest summer music festivals.

Now in its third year CalMac Culture Music for up and coming singers and bands is now open for entries. Finalists will battle it out on the iconic stage at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow on March 31 for a chance to take the stage at one of nine festivals taking place across the west coast.

CalMac's marketing manager, Peter Griffiths said:

"Judging by the quality of entries last year, I'm really looking forward to seeing the talent on show again. It's always a pleasure to be able to support some of the most exciting young acts from all over Scotland."

One of last year's winners - Bella and the Bear - went down so well at HebCelt they have been invited back to play on the main stage this summer on the Isle of Lewis.

"We have increased the number of spots up for grabs this year, so there is even more chance for new talent to be able to showcase their music to a live audience at some of the summers's most popular outdoor music events," added Peter.

The CalMac Culture programme of competitions was the winner of Arts and Business Scotland Creative Business Award 2015.
