Welcome To Wide Days: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Olaf Furniss...

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to Olaf Furniss, journalist and founder of Wide Events, an organisation which hosts the Born To Be Wide music business seminars and social nights, the Off The Record youth days and Scotland's music industry convention/showcase Wide Days, which is on between 13-15th April in Edinburgh.

The two talk about the history of Born To Be Wide, this year's Wide Days, what people can expect, how they can attend and get involved, the different strands of the convention, the importance of bringing industry professionals and artists together, and a whole lot more.

Olaf also explains how the bands and musicians are selected to play, the growing international facet to Wide Days, and gives just a short preview as to what he's most looking forward to.

As you'll hear, Olaf and Wide Events have been involved in Scottish music for many years and it was a real treat to be able to talk to him about Wide Days and so much more.
