If you think that being a MSP is the only way to make a noise at Holyrood, think again…

Holyrood Rocks is a ‘battle of the bands’ style competition which is targeted specifically at those aged 16 – 25. The idea behind the competition is to encourage young people to get involved with the political process. To make a noise and make a difference.

There will be 8 regional heats, mirroring the 8 regions represented at the Scottish Parliament. The winners from each heat will then play in the final which takes place at the Scottish Parliament on Saturday 31 October.

The Highlands and Islands heat takes place in Inverness at the Spectrum Centre on Saturday 3 October. Entries for this heat are still open and are open to any unsigned acts whose members are 16 and over. There is no upper age limit. The final date for entries is this coming Friday (25 September 2015).

Chartered surveyor by day, music reviewer by night, and occasionally I get to use my camera. A strange mix, but one that I enjoy. A chance meeting in the queue for Bella in 2010 led to the opportunity to write for InvernessGigs; a far cry from the days of writing for a football fanzine back in the late 80s, early 90s. My interests lie between the mainstream, the emerging and the local. Increasingly I find that we have more than enough locally to entertain us to necessitate a trip south. I’m always happy to give a listen, whatever the genre. Inverness has a plethora of talent, all of which I am more than keen to write about. If it encourages just one person to make the effort to listen to some new music I’ll be happy. You can contact Frank direct via frankieboyfin@gmail.com
