The covid-19 pandemic has brought about many challenges for the music industry – none more so than the need for artists to possess a broad range of skills across social media platforms. Many would argue that this has been the case for several years, yet 2020 has brought this sharply into focus.
So that we can provide appropriate resources and/or training to develop skills across these channels, Showcase Scotland Expo, the Scottish Music Centre, Trad Music Forum and Hands Up for Trad are conducting research into the understanding and awareness of social media and its full capabilities, amongst artists operating the genres of folk, traditional, roots and acoustic music.
This survey should take no more than 10 minutes. Please be honest with your replies! Your feedback will remain anonymous, and is much appreciated in helping shape our approach for training opportunities.
