Pendle MP calls for musicians for parliament competition
11:40am Wednesday 19th December 2012 in Pendle
ANDREW Stephenson MP has called for musicians and small venues in his Pendle constituency and across East Lancashire to rock the Houses of Parliament.
He wants them to enter a Westminster competition which celebrates up-and-coming British artists and the live music venues that support them.
Applications run until March 1 for Rock The House 2013 – a competition open to musicians who fall into the categories of solo artist, band, under 19 solo, under 19 band, and best small live music venue.
Andrew Stephenson MP said: “Rock The House is a great opportunity for aspiring artists of any age looking to find a way into the industry. I am excited to listen to the tracks that the people of Pendle can come up with, and hope to receive as many submissions as possible.”
Brian May, Queen guitarist, said: “It is a great honour to back Rock The House.”
