This stream has been broadcasted. Highlights coming soon.

October’s here … and October means Musicport!

Musicport is a not-for-profit community business, run by Jim and Sue McLaughlin. We started back in 2000 with a one-off World Music festival for the Millennium, and that one-off provided the impetus that has kept us going ever since – the 2019 festival was a great celebration of the 20 years.

Unfortunately, this year we can’t bring you the festival we’d all like, but we are excited to present two evenings of Musicport online, with live-streamed and pre-recorded performances and some great archive footage. Everything will be presented to you live by Ian Clayton, Jim and Sue McLaughlin from purpose-build for this occasion broadcast studio and available to watch worldwide!

Please get involved by watching the stream and participating on the website chat (available during the broadcast). All the messages will be seen by Ian, Jim and Sue so we hope you will have many memories to share with us.
