The guitarist will take to the stage at Cardiff's ATRiuM as part of the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) and Music Managers' Forum (MMF) Roadshow, which comes to the capital courtesy of the Welsh Music Foundation (WMF) in partnership with I Like The Sound Of That.

Lisa Matthews of the WMF said: "We are thrilled to be partnering two important UK music organisations to host this roadshow in Wales, a country renowned for its musical talent but where management is thinner on the ground. We're honoured that Ed in particular is sharing his experiences with students and helping to inspire a next generation of musicians and music enterprises."

While O'Brien opens the programme of sessions tomorrow, more information for people working in music is available throughout the day. The MMF will provide a manager's perspective giving guidance for those wanting a career as either artists or managers, while musicians and businesses will later get the opportunity to hear from companies including Topspin, Key Production, The Musicians Union and WMF.

Matthews said: "The whole day runs from 1pm to 7pm. The session with Ed O'Brien is open to Wales-based students studying related FE courses only but the afternoon session is open to students and those working in the music sector in Wales. To reserve your place at this event, please visit our eventbrite link."
