The Rural Music Network Tour 2017 will take a diverse range of young bands around Somerset and elsewhere, performing in a variety of venues, from Taunton, to Yeovil, to Bristol. The line-up, consisting of Sour Punch, Eleventh Degree, Cherry Trees, Jessica Hill, Cirrus Down, Drop the Mic, Molly Foster, and Havenless, will also be joined by guest bands at each gig, so if you're a young person in a Somerset-based band, or you know someone who is, make sure to get in touch with SRYP and join this fantastic experience!
As well as providing an opportunity for Somerset’s young musicians, SRYP also encourage any young people that would like hands on experience of being part of a tour to get involved, be it with promotion, helping the crew, live sound mixing, lighting, or stage management.
Somerset Rural Youth Project is a registered charity, established in 1997. For twenty years, they’ve been working on helping Somerset become a place where young people feel a sense of belonging, feel a willingness to contribute and have a future that is not limited by access to opportunities and services.
