Selected Artists Guide

The Making Music Selected Artists Panel, made up of member promoter groups, selects a number of established professional musicians and ensembles to be included in Making Music's annual Selected Artists Guide.

The Selected Artists Guide makes booking professional artists affordable for leisure-time music groups and promoters - Making Music members can book the listed artists at a subsidised fee. In turn, the artists gain exposure and more opportunities for bookings.

Many of the artists listed are available to book for livestreamed or pre-recorded digital performances online, as well as in person. Making Music promoter member groups can apply for new Livestreaming Subsidy to help with this.

The current Selected Artists Guide (2020) will be replaced in 2023 with the new online Recommended Artists Guide.

Some of the artists' programme or biographical information may have changed since the current 2020 guide was first published, however:

  • the Selected Artists and NYCGB fellows are available to book for the stated fees until 1 March 2023
  • the Philip & Dorothy Green Young Artists (PDGYA) listed in the guide are still available to book but their stated fees may have changed, so please contact them to arrange a fee. Or to find out about the latest PDGYA (2021) and how to book them visit the PDGYA section of our website.
