There was some good news in the Budget speech, as SEISS and furlough were extended to September and more money also went into the Cultural Recovery Fund. However, the situation for musicians is still extremely difficult. The MU estimates over 70% of musicians are unsure about their future in the industry. The governments needs to do more!
It has been a bit over a year of lockdown now. People of every profession have had to reinvent themselves and find ways to keep working and creating from home. Musicians are no exception: technology became our best friend and we went on digital stages to keep sharing our art with the world.
