Musicians and others from across the music business will be able to benefit from a series of networking opportunities taking place across the Midlands.  Running since September and going through until August 2009, the Musicians’ Union is hosting Network: Musician
The free events hope to bring together diverse people working in music from across the local scene.  Whether they work in performing, teaching or songwriting or own a record company or studio or are part of a funding and support organisation, it is expected that many will benefit from attendance at the network.  Music practitioners and businesses can come along and seek advice, ask questions, make announcements, look for connections or just attend to see what others are up to.
The event takes place quarterly in Stoke-on-Trent, Derby, Leicester, Nottingham, Lincoln and Stratford-on-Avon.  Network: Musician is free and refreshments are provided.  Each meeting starts at 4pm.
The dates of the first meetings are as follows:

Tuesday 2nd December – Stoke College, Burslem, Moorland Road, Stoke-on-Trent
Wednesday 10th December – The Musician Pub, Clyde Street, Leicester
Wednesday 14th January – Confetti Studios, Covent Street, Nottingham
Tuesday 20th January – Cox’s Yard, Bridgefoot, Stratford-on-Avon
Tuesday 3rd February – The Flowerpot, King Street, Derby
