Showcase Scotland is the largest showcase for folk roots and acoustic music in the U.K., attracting major presenters and festivals from 23 nations around the world.

ECMA will be presenting three showcasing artists at the 2018 Showcase Scotland reception held at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival. This is a tremendous opportunity to showcase in front of a large network of influential international music buyers, booking agents, festival and venue programmers, media, and international representatives from around the world.

Select artists must demonstrate they are export-ready and/or have exporting experience and the ability and team infrastructure to maximize on this showcase opportunity. Open to all ECMA members in good standing.

Deadline for submission interest is Monday, September 11th, 2017. For more submission information or to begin your application, GO HERE

Approval Process:
The Showcase Scotland steering group at Celtic Connections will make the final decision on which ECMA artists will be invited to showcase.

The ECMA awards and stages committee will jury the general list of submissions to develop a long list of the 10 best-qualified applicants. This list will be forwarded to Showcase Scotland on September 18th, 2017 from which the steering group will choose which 3 applicants they wish to invite to showcase.

Note: This is a promotional showcase opportunity and no financial remuneration or performance fee will be paid. As this is a VIP private invite-only event, performances will not be advertised in the Celtic Connections program to the general public and does not guarantee a performance at the Celtic Connections Festival.

Selected artists will be responsible for seeking funding assistance to assist with travel, flights, accommodations, per diems, marketing materials, and work visas/certificate of sponsorship fees.
