Rebecca Harris and her partner, Franklin Mockett, formed multi-disciplinary project, Samana, when they embarked on a spontaneous year-long trip across the natural wilderness and cities of Eastern Europe.
We caught up with supported-artist Rhumba Club to talk about what it's really like to be a musician, how the pandemic interfered with the release of his new album and how, through Help Musicians' support, he learnt to create a long-term sustainable income stream. "It's one of the reasons the charity is really great, because it recognises that some people are just innately creative and need that support to live the life that they need to live" - Rhumba Club
A personal note: Graham Sheffield CBE - Chair, Help Musicians
Jen Green and Caroline Wigmore are musical theatre writers and recent recipients of Help Musicians’ Transmission Fund, which helped them at a crucial point in their development, both as artists and as women working in theatre. Caroline has written a blog to tell us more about their experience at SHE Festival New York this past June, presenting their new show, ‘The Bachelor Girls’.
Musician Go is a brand new website that aims to be every musician’s central resource to receive gig bookings, search for music teachers to harness their progression and discover local businesses to serve their musical needs.
As the charity approaches it centenary year in 2021, we are committed to be truly representative of the music sector, increasing our presence in the nations and regions of the UK, being inclusive to every genre and reaching a diverse range of musicians and those working in the broader industry.
