Global Music Matchmaking Program
Following the success of the debut Global Music Match in 2020, the worldwide music matchmaking program returns from June 7, featuring 78 artists from 17 countries – including 13 from Australia.
Artists from Australia, Brittany in France, Canada, Catalonia, Chile, Denmark, England, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Taiwan, USA and Wales are set to collaborate over the coming three months, in what is thought to be the world’s largest online musical matchmaking program.
This year’s iteration follows 2020’s world-first collaboration, which was created by founding partners Sounds Australia, Showcase Scotland Expo and Canada’s East Coast Music Association in a bid to continue developing profiles for folk-based artists in international music markets within the challenging and unprecedented parameters of COVID-19.
The 13 Australian folk artists participating in this year’s Global Music Match are: Andrea Kirwin, Emma Swift, Ernest Aines, Francesca de Valence, Georgia State Line, Gretta Ziller, Joel Havea, Melanie Horsnell, Monique Clare, Musketeer, Rich Davies, Ruth Hazleton and Tom West
