Independent Record Label Market

57° North and the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA), alongside Comprende Records and Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) are proud to announce the inaugural Independent Record Label Market event in Aberdeen.

Taking place at one of the city’s key music venues, The Lemon Tree, on Saturday 15 November, the market will see some of Scotland’s best independent record labels gather to sell their wares, all under one roof.

From Glasgow’s Chemikal Underground and Olive Grove, through Edinburgh’s Song, by Toad and Eigg’s Lost Map, to the best of the North East such as Fat Hippy and Tuff Wax, the market will provide a unique opportunity to buy some fantastic music, directly from the people who run the labels.

The event will also feature DJ sets, a bar for refreshments, and a few surprises. A full line-up of the day’s events will be released shortly.

57° North’s John Anderson: “The closure of much-loved record shop One-Up left a huge hole in the region’s music scene, so we’re delighted to be working with the SMIA and APA to give people the chance to buy their music ‘over-the-counter’ again, in the kind of social atmosphere we’ve all been missing”.

Caroline Cooper of SMIA: ‘Having worked on label fairs in Glasgow and Edinburgh over the past couple of years we are delighted to be involved with bringing the label market to Aberdeen. It’s incredibly important for the SMIA to have a presence all over Scotland and the lack of record stores in the city make Aberdeen the perfect choice. We hope many of you will come to get to know us and the labels taking part a bit better and, of course, buy some music. We’re looking forward to see you all on the 15thof November.”

Steven Milne (The Lemon Tree/APA):

“We’re really looking forward to the upcoming Label Market event being at the Lemon Tree – since One Up’s closing it’s something we’ve always thought would work really well in Aberdeen, and particularly in the Lemon Tree space. It’s going to be a great chance for Aberdeen music lovers to pick up new music from a lot of the best Scottish labels who are coming up for the day. Furthermore, it’ll be great for the local music scene as many local labels and acts will have a presence there to to sell their material. It’s something a bit different for the venue, but these kind of events are really exciting and we’re expecting the event to be very well attended and received.”

Jim Ewen (Comprende Records):

“I went to a small label market last year on my travels and felt that our own music scene was ripe for hosting something similar.  We quickly pricked the ears of the wider national music scene and industry and it’s always good to have them turn their focus on Aberdeen. Support has been great, so we are looking forward to exploring new partnerships and events.”

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
