A kickstarter campaign has been set up with aims of saving the live music scene in Stornoway and the Western Isles.

Keith Morrison, Owner and Manager of Wee Studio, set up the online campaign which aims to raise £6500 before January 14th, 2015.

If the funds can be raised, Keith wants to see the introduction of a series of live music events at various venues through the Western Isles.

Keith said: “If you are based in Lewis and Harris and you’re into local music, or going out and seeing live music at all, you’ll have noticed that over the last three years four music venues have closed their doors.

“That’s put us in a tricky position.

“In my whole music career there have never been more musicians with absolutely nowhere to play.

“Now I’ve got a plan to regenerate the music scene here on the Isle of Lewis and Harris and we want to give these musicians a chance to perform, which means putting gigs on.”
