"..making things happen since 1999!"

 

 

In 1999, we believed attracting sponsors & acquiring funding could prove to be a fruitless & demoralising task for a fledgling organisation such as ours. We rightly considered we would feel a lot happier doing what we proposed to do, rather than wasting time & energy trying to convince potential funders that we could do it a lot more effectively if they supported us. We know that we made the right decision. As well as organising many events over the last few years, NSI have provided help, encouragement, advice & regular opportunities for new, established & aspiring songwriters, enabling some significant personal achievements. As well as the highly acclaimed performances by the experienced singer songwriters who have made nsi events so great, other singer songwriters have not only enhanced the reputation of NSI events but also taken the opportunity these events offer to produce some outstanding personal achievements.
These include;
- Dave Teledu
performing his own songs in public for the very first time.
Dave enjoyed the opportunity & said "It was the first time I've performed solo in front of an audience, and by "audience" that includes any group of people in a house or a band rehearsal or whatever. It was a new experience indeed." - we have invited him to contribute a song to one of our compilation CDs & to perform at a showcase concert later this year.
- Dave Everitt
, Kev Fisher, Hetty Fitz, Warren Volume, Dave Atkins & Mark Paulson completing their first solo performances as singer songwriters.
- Roj, an extremely accomplished musician and highly regarded bass player, encouraged (by nsi) to write a full set of his own songs & perform them (on guitar) 'solo' at a nsi open mic night & then return by popular demand to headline a NSI singer songwriter showcase concert.

Below is a list of events organised by NSI which goes back to it's 1st event in 1999.
