Following on from the success of its regular Speakeasy networking evenings in London and the East Midlands, the Music Producers Guild is now extending the initiative to Scotland where a Caledonian MPG Speakeasy was held to tie in with goNorth.

MPG Executive Directors and producers Mick Glossop and Andrew Hunt hosted the event, which was held at McPhabb’s bar in Charing Cross, Glasgow, and was organised by Caroline Cooper and Stewart Henderson of the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA).

"Andrew and I were in Scotland, having once again taken part in the annual goNorth conference and festival in Inverness," Mick Glossop says. "We held a Speakeasy after last year's goNorth and it was such a success that we decided to hold another this year. It was the perfect way to end our trip and we welcomed the opportunity to reconnect with producers we had met in the past and forge stronger links with other recording professionals north of the border. We hope that there will be many more opportunities in the future."

This year's goNorth attracted over 100 leading industry players from the fields of music, screen, broadcast and gaming. The conference included daytime panels and workshops, and provided showcasing opportunities for artists and bands from all over Europe.

Mick Glossop and Andrew Hunt were there to promote the value of music production to artists, musicians, producers, recording engineers, record company executives, publishers and managers. They took part in a lively discussion panel entitled Meet The Producers, which was moderated by Mick Glossop and featured contributions from producers Tony Doogan, Simon Gogerly, Gilles Perring and Scottish recording artist, Roddy Hart.

"There is a strong, vibrant and incredibly enthusiastic music industry in Scotland, supported by several organisations, including the SMIA, Creative Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprises, with which the MPG now has strong links," says Andrew Hunt. "The sense of community in Scottish music is markedly apparent – something that you don’t often witness in London, which is a real shame."

Glossop adds: "MPG will continue to develop the links we have established in Scotland, and make every attempt to create further opportunities to promote the MPG and the value of music production, north of the border."
