This week’s lookback on the UK country music livestreams has been pleasurable to come up with. There are many individuals who have taken their shot at having artists livestream through their pages e.g.William Hope with his Hope it's Country and Danny Coffill-brown also Buckle & Boots Country Festival. Other pages have been very involved in streaming too.
Other livestreams on the go have been Bare Faced Friday Livestream with Emilia Quinn who along with Katy Hurt and Sally Rea Morris proved a great way to spend Friday afternoon although Sally had a few internet issues. Sunday night also saw the first at home Livestream from Scottish sister act The Logans. Over the previous 3 weeks I mentioned how great it was seeing the 3 members of The Wandering Hearts do their own thing and this week we saw the first of hopefully all 3 members of The Adelaides take to the air. Again, I’ve mentioned how good these acts are as a band, but Paris Georgia was phenomenal covering the bands songs solo or with a guest appearance from Alicia or Abi. Her interpretation of songs she covered certainly highlighted her beautiful voice.
New music also appeared this week and a brilliant First album has just dropped from Twinnie with 'Hollywood Gypsy' and a single from my great friend Emma Moore with 'Waiting For You' being amongst my favourites.
As I’ve mentioned before up here in the north of Scotland, we do not get very many UK country acts visiting as the area is predominantly more used to having Irish acts visit but during the lockdown we’ve had a few of the UK acts feature on some streams thanks to the share button on their streams. One north fb page I’ve had the chance to speak to and submit a few names is Lock Down Buddies. On speaking to a couple of the admin team there I have dropped a few mentions but if anyone of our acts are interested in maybe getting involved doing a livestream then why not get in touch with them. I do know that they have been in touch with a few people so hopefully we can get the word spread and I also know that there are a few music promoters that keep an eye on that page. Gary Quinn did a great job there last Sunday and I could see by the comments during his set that a lot of new interest was generated. Another north page is Lockdown Live Aberdeenshire who this week had a set from Jessica Lynn who is in the UK as often as she can.
This week also saw a few of our acts throw a wee comedy song into the arena and one by Fiona McKenna was absolutely brilliant and North Highland Events and Promotions Liam Christie was also on the ball with his song, why not check them out for a bit of a laugh.
Again, as I keep saying until next week Stay Safe, Stay Home and support our friends in these difficult times.
