Fergal Sharkey: Government can help the music industry
More people can have a successful career using their chosen musical instrument if support is provided by the next government, Feargal Sharkey has suggested.
The former Undertones singer, who is now the head of industry organisation UK Music, said the UK is currently one of the best places in the world in terms of its music scene.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music, he added that more could still be done to help those plying their trade on musical instruments.
"We think the government has a role to play in making sure that every young artist, musician, entrepreneur is getting every bit of support and every bit of encouragement," he said.
Sharkey said the right policies could help turn the UK into the most successful nation in the world in regards to its musical output.
Earlier this year, mayor of London Boris Johnson launched a £250,000 initiative designed to encourage links between orchestras and local authorities in the English capital.
It is hoped the scheme will encourage more youngsters in London to pick up a musical instrument.Posted on 4 May 2010 19:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
