Evening Express (City Final) - - Home & Abroad -

THE di­rec­tor of an Aberdeen mu­sic fes­ti­val has warned its fu­ture growth could be se­ri­ously ham­pered by Brexit.

Sound fes­ti­val has brought to­gether mu­si­cians from across the world over the last week and a half.

The event has also in­cluded the premiere of a spe­cially-com­mis­sioned work writ­ten by a French com­poser.

Sound fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Fiona Robert­son warned the UK’S fu­ture re­la­tion­ship with the Eu­ro­pean Union – and specif­i­cally how easy it would be for mu­si­cians to cross bor­ders – could have a large ef­fect.

She said: “We have huge con­cerns that Brexit could im­pact on our abil­ity to com­mis­sion new work.”
