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’.
A personal view from Graham Sheffield, Chair of Help Musicians UK
Hear from Bex Burch, one of the first recipients of the Transmission Fund, who used her money to return to western Ghana to live and play music with the Dagaare tribe.
I am very grateful to have been awarded the Career Development Bursary by Help Musicians UK, which gave me the opportunity to make a dream come true: visit Palestine and make music with the people living there.
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.
As part of our Valentine’s takeover day we are sharing our love for musicians by sharing stories on how we've helped musicians through a crisis or illness.
