A group set up to revive Moray’s music scene is embarking on a pioneering project to bring the area’s young artists to a wider audience.
The Lantern of the North initiative is staging a series of intimate shows at venues around Elgin.
The first of the live sessions will held at the Pati’s Place cafe on the town’s Batchen Street next Thursday.
Buckie guitarist Calum Jones has been lined up to play a selection of his own material to the invite-only crowd.
But although show is not open to the public, organisers have devised plans to make sure it reaches as many people as possible.
Cameras will be set up to record the performance, which will be broadcast live over social media to an unlimited audience.
Lantern of the North co-founder, Barry Jarvis, said: “Our concept is pretty simple – we will have a single act, playing in an intimate setting, with the whole thing streamed live via Facebook.
“Calum Jones has experience playing with the Footerin’ Aboot ceilidh band but is establishing himself as a very accomplished solo artist in his own right.”
Mr Jones began writing his own music when he was just 13, and was a finalist in the Speyfest folk festival’s young musician contest in 2015.
Yesterday, he announced that one of his songs is expected to be played by DJ Jo Whiley during her BBC Radio 2 show on Saturday.
Between songs, there will be some shared discussion on the local music scene and on the organisation’s plans to grow it.
Mr Jarvis is hopeful that the series of small concerts will help spread word of his group and encourage more people to sign up as members.
