Sunset Sessions – Live Music Returns…

It’s more than just music… it’s a shared emotion, a reverberation through your bones, a collective moment of joy. These days it’s a symbol of hope, of a return to life as we once knew it.

The end of live music, whether stadium concerts or intimate gigs, left a hole in many of our hearts when Covid hit the UK last March. As we say above music is so much more than notes and lyrics – it’s something that unites people and creates precious memories. While there was some solace in online gigs played out from living spaces, home studios and even kitchens (cheers to Sophie Ellis Bextor for her incredible Kitchen Karaoke sessions with the kids), it wasn’t the same as the rush that an audience experiences from seeing an artist perform live mere feet away from you.

All across the industry those involved have felt the emotional and financial toll of Covid restrictions. Artists, big and small, have lost their main stream of revenue and those who provide the support and additional skills that allow them to create magical performances did too. According to Musicians Union 38% of musicians fell through the gaps in government support and 34% were considering leaving the industry as a result. These are mostly unsigned, indie acts who don’t have the financial cushion of a big record label to protect them which is a huge blow to the diversity and creativity of the UK music scene.

At Taymouth Marina we truly believe in the power of live music at all levels and want to support these dreamers, creatives and music makers. So we created the Sunset Sessions as soon as restrictions allowed live outdoor music. Initially featuring the incredible John Rush, the dulcet tones of Katee Kris have been added to our roster as well and we couldn’t be happier to have live music back. The community spirit and emotional response that flooded in from the first gig was powerful and beautiful. 

We can’t wait to dance with you all, by the shores of Loch Tay as the sun sets. Keep an eye on our socials for more information on the next Sunset Session coming soon!
