A popular music festival which has brought some big names to Aberdeen in recent years will be staged online next weekend.
The True North extravaganza, which has taken place every year since 2015, will beam live performances from favourite venues into fans’ sitting rooms.
Aberdeen Performing Arts announced that this year, viewers will be treated to a headlining performance in the Music Hall by acclaimed singer-songwriter Kathryn Joseph.
There will also be a set of songs especially for younger audiences, and a series of live streamed performances showcasing some of the finest young talent in the north-east.
Ben Torrie, Aberdeen Performing Arts’ director of programming and creative projects, said: “We’ve curated a programme which shines a light on the immense talent of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire musicians and can’t wait to share their unique and distinct voices with music-lovers everywhere.
“With so many gigs and festivals not going ahead this year, we are delighted that we can present a miniature version of True North online for audiences to enjoy.”
Usually an important milestone in the Granite City’s cultural calendar, organisers had to adapt proceedings when it became clear that coronavirus would prevent the festival going on as it usually has.
The concerts mark the first performances staged by Aberdeen Performing Arts since venues across the country closed in March, and will be broadcast across all the True North social media channels.
