Performances from an Aberdeen music festival forced to take place virtually this year have been viewed more than 10.000 times online.
The True North Music Festival is celebrating its success after five artists who learned their trade in the north-east performed in the virtual gig over the weekend.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event wasn’t able to go ahead in its usual format but organisers have now counted more than 10,000 views of the videos shared during the celebration.
The event was opened on Friday by Aiysha Russell when she perfomed an original track she wrote about the Black Lives Matter movement, alongside covers of songs by Ella Fitzgerald and Adele.
Adam Ross started the Saturday show with an early morning performance aimed at 9-12 year-old children, before an evening show from local talent Scott Wallace was live-streamed.
Headlining the Saturday night concert was Kathryn Joseph who recorded a set from the Music Hall stage.
Aberdeen Performing Arts chief executive, Jane Spiers, said: “We couldn’t be more delighted with the success of True North 2020.
“The number of people who tuned in and viewed highlights the importance of the festival and the appetite for live music in the region.
“The acts were all fantastic and it was a real reminder of how essential events such as True North are to the north-east.
“With 95% of our workforce furloughed I’m very proud of our small retained team for going the extra mile to pull this off.”
