The event will feature the very best of the region's talent, including live shows by Wild Beasts, Paul Marshall, Talk To Angels, Rolo Tomassi and Sky Larkin. For those attending SXSW this year, the Yorkshire Music Showcase event will take place on Saturday 21st March between 12pm and 3pm at the British Music Embassy / Latitude 30 (512 San Jacinto).

Over the last 4 years, the award winning social enterprise Timeless Music Project has been delivering projects aimed at drawing attention to and supporting Yorkshire's talented music industry. Established in 2004 by singer and record label owner Pat Fulgoni, projects include regional showcase CDs, events, festivals, campaigning and conferences.

As well as the live showcase event, there'll be another Timeless Music Project regional CD sampler “Independent Sounds of Yorkshire and the Humber” at the event, which will again help to profile some of our best homegrown talent.
