Music Hothouse Participants Write, Record and Produce tracks in lockdown: Listen now

9 Feb 2021

Although we couldn't gather in person over Christmas break, over 30 young people aged 11-18 came together to form bands, write songs and perform together in a virtual Music Hothouse.

Kindly supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland's Emergency Funding, this programme allowed young people to hone their musicianship, make new friends and facilitated connections even while we were in lockdown. As part of the Winter Hothouse, Nerve Centre delivered instrument tuition, masterclasses in songwriting and recording, plus two virtual open mic sessions where participants got an opportunity to show off their musical talents.

Listen to the tracks they produced below.
