Students Hear from Idlewild Musician

We have had a fantastic set of guest speakers for our Creative Industries students Semester 1 2014. Some of which included: Stuart Fleming from PRS for Music; Grainne Braithwaite from Synergy Concerts; Keith Harris from Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL); Matt Roth & Nan Turner from Olive Juice Records/Schwervon.

Last of which being Rod Jones- Idlewild musician! Around 70 music students at Perth College UHI enjoyed an informative guest lecture by Rod Jones from the Scottish band Idlewild last month. Rod is a songwriter and musician, best known as a founding member of Scottish indie rock band Idlewild with whom he has recorded six studio albums. Jones is also the frontman of rock band The Birthday Suit and co-creator of the on-going musical project, The Fruit Tree Foundation."

Overall feedback from students has been extremely positive and they are looking forward to the next round of guests!
