Cashback Creative Evenings: Meet the Tutor - Finn LeMarinel

Cashback Creative Evenings are in full swing across Scotland but they're are still spaces for young people to get involved!

Finn LeMarinel, the very talented singer, songwriter and teacher leads Glasgow's music workshops every Tuesday evening from Four o'clock - we spoke with him about his practice, his workshops and what young people can expect from Creative Evenings.

Who are you?

I am a musician/composer, I've been writing songs since I was about five, my first song was about a plague the killed everyone and all of my songs since have continued along a similar vein. I have a degree in music from UWS in which I focused on songwriting and performance. I have released EP's and albums under my own name and have performed at a number festivals across the country and in Europe.

What can the young people expect to learn in your workshops, what kind of environment do you foster?

I hope that young people take away a deeper understanding of music from the workshops and also the belief in themselves and tools to make their own music!

What outcomes do you expect?

For this particular project we are writing a song about cashback and it’s achievements over its 10 years of running. The outcomes I expect are a recorded song in which all members of the group have contributed to. Also I hope young people make new new social connections and get a confidence boost from doing something new
