New report calls for comprehensive Atlantic music strategy

A new report suggests that investing in Atlantic Canada's music scene could mean profits for the region as a whole.

The report calling for a comprehensive Atlantic music strategy was presented at the East Coast Music Awards in Saint John, N.B.

It says the East Coast's music industry is hindered by a lack of infrastructure, stringent liquor laws and restrictions on live venues.

The report recommends creating an Atlantic Canadian Music Fund to finance creativity in the region.
