Summer 2023 has been busy for ELJam: full of festivals and sunshine!
We started in May in Haddington, where we partnered with Haddstock and the Bridge Centre to run our first ever Battle of the Bands. This saw 10 new bands from ELC high schools coming together to compete in front of a packed room and some very prominent and successful judges from the music business. Click here for more details.
Following on from this success, we took a number of these bands plus some other youth bands from around East Lothian, to Fringe by the Sea in North Berwick
Next on the list of highlights was for Red Raven, Gaslight and Room 27 to perform at Hops in the Garden: an absolutely fantastic food and beer festival held at Archerfield Walled Garden in aid of Leuchie House.
And last but not least, the brilliant Dunbar Music Festival invited ELJam to host a youth showcase at their weekend long event in September. Six high school bands took part in this and they absolutely did themselves, their schools and ELJam proud!
