Staff and students from the University of the West of Scotland are lining up a super-gig featuring a host of Scottish music stars.

Titled Starless, the show is based on an album created by UWS lecturer and former Love & Money member Paul McGeechan and will feature well known artists including Hipsway’s Grahame Skinner; Chris Thomson of The Bathers; Capercaillie’s Karen Matheson and Emma Pollock.

It takes place at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on Saturday, June 4, with staff and students from the university’s commercial music course involved in all parts of the gig.

Paul explained: “All of the staff on the BA Commercial Music course are working within the industry, and it is important for us to use the connections we have to create opportunities for students.

We pride ourselves on producing graduates who are more than ready to make an impact on the industry – and the real-world experience they gain along the way is pivotal to that.”

The students will be given the opportunity to meet the artists and work alongside them providing in-event support such as filming, recording and liaising with the musicians.

Onnagh Redmond, a student on the BA Commercial Music course, said: “I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to organise this event. I’m looking to work in live music events after I graduate, so this is invaluable experience for me.

“One of the best things about studying Commercial Music at UWS is the opportunity you get to apply what you learn in real-world settings, and working alongside world-class artists at Starless is giving me the chance to do just that.”
