YOUNG singers from Dunfermline are being asked to step forward to fill a final slot for an event at this year's Outwith Festival.

The Under 18 Singer Songwriter Showcase is being hosted by the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum and one more act is needed to complete the line-up.

Those already booked represent all parts of Scotland and it is hoped that talent from the city will take part.

The showcase will see two acts perform from BBC Children in Need funded project Granton Youth Mixtape Club, led by Ryan McGlone, a former Woodmill High School pupil.

Ryan was also a member of Dunfermline-based band People, Places, Maps.

The club acts as an open access introduction to playing music, singing, song writing and performing for young people over the age of 11.

It works with youth staff and music tutors to offer a variety of instruments and vocal coaching as well as lessons about the music industry.

Ryan said: “We at Granton Youth are excited to be given such a good platform for young people to showcase their musical talent. When you are in a band and see your name alongside bigger and more established acts, or acts that you yourself would listen to personally, it gives you a real confidence boost and the drive to keep creating and playing live which is so important."

Performing from the club will be electro-pop upstart Laurent and fuzz punk newcomers Low Tide.

Kat Caballero-Rennie - or Laurent - began making music at an Edinburgh youth group when she was just 15 with a song about face paint.

She turned the instructions on the packaging - which are often left unread - into her first song, Hunting Season.

The track received airplay on BBC Introducing in Scotland and on US radio stations.

Her music showcases influence from mainstream artists to the more obscure with slick electro pop and introspective lyrics, which she says are open to interpretation.

Laurent's second single, Paint, was released last month and is taken from her debut EP, Modern Myths, which was launched on August 4.

Low Tide are an Edinburgh-based indie rock band which formed while the members were in high school.

The group's debut single, Between Knuckles, is a social commentary inspired by a night where lead singer Beau Johnston was followed home. It was released on July 28.

The Outwith event takes place in Memorial Hall on Moodie Street on September 9 from 7pm until 9pm.

Any band or solo performer who is under 18 and interested in performing can get in touch with the museum on with details to organise an audition.
