May 26, 2019

Sun 22 Sept 2019 / 7pm


Following the success of Plug In Tune Up that took place in September 2018, The HopBarn is excited to announce a new date for 2019.


This special event, invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from young musicians from 12 to 21 years of age who are not studying music at a conservatoire or specialist music institution, and who like the opportunity to play infront of a live audience.

The HopBarn is particulary keen to receive EOI from young people who write, compose and perform their own work.
