“Our experience with Music for Youth has meant so much for ‘Gutted!’ as a group. After years of playing at the festival it was really exciting to have our hard work and dedication rewarded...Our partnership with the Musicians’ Union has allowed us to achieve things we never thought possible, with a workshop with our favourite viol consort ‘Fretwork’ and an opportunity to be professionally recorded in a studio.” Kit Marshall, ‘Gutted!’ Viol Consort
