Scott Muir on Musical Chairs

From Musical Chairs, 4:00 pm on 14 August 2010

Scott Muir is a man at the centre of the Dunedin music scene. He manages the live music venue Refuel, as well as prominent Dunedin bands The Chills and Del Girl, and mentors many others. Muir is one of the people behind the music resource website DunedinMusic.com and has a role in managing the business end of the new Albany Street Recording Studio - a co-operative venture with the University of Otago Music Department. He is on the board of Independent Music New Zealand (IMNZ), is a regional coordinator for the Music Managers Forum (MMF), and sits on the board of the Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust. He is too self-effacing to describe himself as the face of Dunedin music, but it's a hat that fits him well. For Musical Chairs Trevor Reekie talks to Scott Muir about the diverse portfolio of roles he undertakes, and his contribution to the thriving Dunedin music community.
