I am delighted and honoured to offer any support I can to the Soundhouse project. Over the last few years it has become increasingly difficult for musicians and artists to make a living and to find outlets for their work in Edinburgh. The financial crisis and the changes in the way people access music are partly responsible for this but I believe an indifferent council and the belief that culture can be imported to Edinburgh for one month of the year have also played a part. Grassroots culture is alive in Edinburgh but it is not kicking and we desperately need a venue like the Soundhouse. I fully support the aims and aspirations of the Soundhouse project and would urge anyone who doesn’t want bankers and accountants as the sole arbiters of taste to do the same.
