Music Producers Guild Holds Second Scottish Speakeasy

The Music Producers Guild (MPG) has held a second Speakeasy event in Scotland, in an effort to "forge stronger links" with the country's vibrant music industry.

Held at McPhabb’s bar in Charing Cross, Glasgow, the event was hosted by MPG's executive director and producer Mick Glossop and Andrew Hunt, and organised by Caroline Cooper and Stewart Henderson of the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA).
Mr Glossop said: "Andrew and I were in Scotland, having once again taken part in the annual goNorth conference and festival in Inverness.
"We held a Speakeasy after last year's goNorth and it was such a success that we decided to hold another this year. It was the perfect way to end our trip and we welcomed the opportunity to reconnect with producers we had met in the past and forge stronger links with other recording professionals north of the border. We hope that there will be many more opportunities in the future."
Andrew Hunt added: "There is a strong, vibrant and incredibly enthusiastic music industry in Scotland, supported by several organisations, including the SMIA, Creative Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprises, with which the MPG now has strong links.
"The sense of community in Scottish music is markedly apparent – something that you don’t often witness in London, which is a real shame."
