Stonehaven Folk Club recognizes the catastrophic impact that Covid-19 has had on Scottish Folk Artists and their crew’s incomes. To help address this impact, the Club has teamed up with Hands Up for Trad to start up a fund to help support Folk musicians and music production staff living in Scotland during the crisis.
To launch the Fund, Stonehaven Folk Club is providing 20 grants of £250 to help towards living expenses during this period when affected individuals are unable to work. It is hoped this fund will grow with further donations from other organisations and the public. If you would like to apply to the fund click here.
