CALLING all musicians!

A prize pot in excess of €5000 is up for grabs in the  ACCESS competition which will take place during this year’s Rose of Tralee festival.

The competition is open to all solo artists, duos, groups or bands who can submit an original song and are available to come to Tralee the week of the Festival. The event is sponsored by the Tralee Vintners Association so all performers must be 18 years or over by August 15th 2014.

The winning act will receive mentoring from music industry professionals such as Martin Nolan of MPI Management Promotion, Murt Whelan from Murt Whelan Sound & Lighting, Tony O’Flaherty from Sonas Recording Studio and international exposure from a slot on the highly popular Balcony TV.

Last year’s inaugural winner Gary Keane AKA ‘Like a Fire’ has already seen success come his way as he recently won the chance to perform on the Oxjam stage at this year’s Electric Picnic.

He was also one of only three Irish acts invited to Toronto to perform at the Irish Showcase at the prestigious Indie Week Canada last October.

His one man beatbox live shows have been described as ‘truly remarkable’ and have led to him supporting acts such as Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Kodaline and Ryan Sheridan.
