Family and Carer Day: Speaker Spotlight Musician Jenn Butterworth

With our Family and Carer Day steadily approaching, we are excited to announce the first of our Industry Speakers – musician Jenn Butterworth.

Jenn Butterworth is one of the foremost folk guitarists in the UK acoustic music scene.  An excellent collaborator, she has been a key member of a range of high profile folk music projects, including Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton’s SYMBIOSIS Big Band, three Celtic Connections New Voices, four years on the BBC Hogmanay Live show as a member of the All Star House Band and recently a member of folk supergroup ‘Songs of Separation’ involving an array of prominent folk artists including Eliza Carthy, Lady Maisery and Karine Polwart.  The Songs of Separation album, conceived, arranged and recorded in just 7 days, won the title of ‘Best Album’ at the Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2017.

Family and Carer Day 2019 – Book Your Place Now! 

When: Sunday 24th March, 11am – 4pm  
Where: Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 100 Renfrew St, Glasgow G2 3DB 

We know how daunting it can be pursuing a career in the creative industries, especially when no one you know has done it before.  

If you’re a current Transitions student or a pupil from a WACI/FOCUS West school, you and your family or carers are warmly invited to our Family and Carer Day. 

Family and Carer Day is a chance for pupils with their families or carers to come along to: 

  • meet and hear from people already working in the creative industries 
  • chat to students currently studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland 
  • watch performances 
  • explore different pathways and routes into Music, Dance, DramaFilm and Production
  • find out from SAAS what funding is available for Scottish students 

Siblings and other family members are welcome. Lunch will be provided. 


We look forward to seeing you all there!
