Amy Macdonald (IVW Scottish Ambassador 2021)

“I was so honoured to be asked to represent independent venues in Scotland for IVW 2021, without small venues I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now, I’m forever thankful for the opportunity they gave me! Oran Mor is such a beautiful venue in my hometown, so it was great to get the guys together and do a few songs there, even if we couldn’t get an audience in.”

Denholm Ellis (Hot Box Live Events, Chelmsford)

Independent Venue Week this year gave us absolute focus for a week in the midst of a pandemic. We had the opportunity to put on 7 shows which reached our regular customers and a worldwide audience.”

“Around 80,000 people watched the shows. It allows us to raise the profile of our venue and share big musical artists to our regulars and an entirely new audience. Grassroots venues are incredibly important for emerging artists. IVW puts a spotlight on these venues by bringing more established artists in for shows. It builds excitement at venues and draws customers back to live music after the festive period.”

Due out on Friday 3rd December, the album will be released right before Independent Venue Week 2022.
