Help Musicians UK is the leading independent charity for those working in the UK music industry.
2018 marks the launch of ROOTED IN SCOTLAND, establishing Help Musicians Scotland’s (HMScotland) permanent roots in the nation.
HMScotland will uniquely benefit Scottish musicians, provide bespoke Scottish programming and campaigns, plus link to the charity’s near-100 years of health and welfare support for the music industry. Importantly, all of the funds raised in Scotland will stay in Scotland to help support the industry and its needs. Through its permanent office base and dedicated team, HMScotland will reach the entire country reflecting and celebrating the diversity and uniqueness of Scottish music.
The ROOTED IN SCOTLAND launch will see various events taking place across the country. At the heart of the launch, is the ROOTED IN SCOTLAND gig in Glasgow’s iconic King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut venue on 1 February 2018. Scottish heroes Idlewild will return to the venue for the first time in a decade for a special acoustic set to mark the occasion. Scottish musicians Be Charlotte, Indigo Velvet and SKJØR will also perform – all of whom have received support from the charity in the past.
