Partnership agreement with Norway

In 2010 Showcase Scotland will host a “Spotlight on Norway” event presenting five Norwegian artist chosen in partnership with the Norwegian Traditional Music Agency and Celtic Connection.

Showcase Scotland, a division of the Celtic Connection festival, is the largest gathering of the international music community in the Scottish calendar. A chance for promoters, record labels, agents and festival organisers to meet both the Scottish industry and each other, and an opening to see, firsthand, a vast display of performances from the cream of Scottish talent.


Each year Showcase Scotland also invites another country or region to present their music at the same venues. This has given the Norwegian Traditional Music Agency, Music Export Norway and the Royal Norwegian Agency in London the opportunity to sign a partnership agreement with Showcase Scotland in 2010. Norway receives the handover from Quebec who is partner in 2009. The agreement gives Norwegian artists a significant opportunity to play for a global audience, eager to discover new music to bring back home.
