Episode 48 – Help Musicians: A Pandemic Lifeline!

March 10, 2021

It Is Not An Overstatement To Say That The Charity "Help Musicians" Have Made The Difference Between Many Musicians Surviving Or Going Under Across The UK.

The pandemic has hit so many people in all walks of live very hard. For many in the arts, the actual foundations that underpin their lives has been taken away; the opportunity to perform and earn a living.
Help Musicians are one of several non governmental options available. If you are a musician or you know someone who is and they need financial and or other help, then please listen and share this podcast.

David Culbert leads up a dedicated team in Glasgow, Scotland who give help to musicians across Scotland as part of the UK wide Help Musicians charity. Ged Brockie's interview with David includes finding out where this organisation came from, the work it does and the help it gave before the pandemic and during this trying time.
