For 25 years student label Electric Honey has helped kick-start the careers of many of Scotland’s best bands. Belle & Sebastian, Snow Patrol and Biffy Clyro are just some of the names who’ve released songs through the label, which is run through Glasgow Kelvin College.
Electric Honey’s new signing Dope Sick Fly just won the Celtic Connections “Danny Kyle” Open Stage Award!!!
“Founded in the summer 2015 in Glasgow Scotland having busked the streets of Glasgow, the band evolved their sound into a Soul, Rock, Poetic, Acid Jazz fusion with just the right amount of Funk. With lead singer/poet Ant Thomaz soulful vocals, guitarist Chris Darling and his keen desire for funk, Drummer Calum macrae with his Jazz background, Joe Djaelani on bass elevating Neo Soul and bluesy backing vocalist Wendy Rae, Dope Sick Fly truly emanates a new refreshing alive sound. There’s a confidence and power to the band’s live set that at times can be mesmerising. The lyrically explosive, musically diverse, Funk Rock Hybrid known as Dope Sick Fly project an upbeat feel good vibe inviting everyone to join in with catchy hooks and to dance their hearts out. Dope Sick Fly are encouraging & sing of life, connecting to all ages of people; making music for people!” Source: http://www.celticmusicradio.net/category/dkos/

Communities Tackling FGM
Join us on 17 February at 10:00–16:30 for a Seminar and training led by Rosa, the UK fund for women and girls. The event will take place at Albany Training Centre, 44 Ashley Street, Glasgow, G3 6DS.
Rosa, the UK fund for women and girls, recently produced the ‘Communities Tackling FGM – Best Practice Guide’, to share lessons taken from the Tackling FGM Initiative. The key recommendation of the initiative was the need to work with, provide resources for and engage community based organisations who have developed effective approaches to preventing FGM.
This Glasgow based event has been organised in conjunction with FGM Aware to promote the Best Practice Guide and support community organisations to embed the lessons learned within their practice. The event will also promote local community engagement work and provide an opportunity for networking.
The morning session will hear from a range of speakers and is open to workers, volunteers and community activists who are engaging with communities potentially affected by FGM or who would like to increase engagement with these communities.
In the afternoon Rosa will lead a training session and priority for places will be given to community representatives.
There is no charge for attending this event. To apply for a place please email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Name and organisation (if applicable).
