Have you ever applied for a council / goverment arts music grant?
Well if any one has can you tell me how you got on. I rang my local council up today and enquired about one.
The thing is I wrote some music and managed to get it published. My publisher told me we’ve just got our first sale . . bloody great / over the moon etc, best Christmas present I’ve had so far. Yip heeeeeeeeee . .
Anyway , I’d be lying if I told you its an Irish song cos it ain’t . . its actually a song / tune for a brass band . Anybody heard of Grimethorpe brass band? well they are arguebly the best brass band in the world . . I exaggerate not.
The band is based about 5 miles from where I live, (thats Barnsley England by the way,) and so if I could get this band to play my music it would be fantastic, and as well great for the culture and image of the town.
I haven’t actually approached the band yet . . thought I’d do some research first. But I do know they are very busy and I am betting they would want paying to play/perform/record my music . . hence the application for an arts grant.
Well what do you think? Advise/comments/ donations 🙂
