About the Folk in Crisis Fund
Stonehaven Folk Club recognised the catastrophic impact that Covid-19 is having on Scottish Folk Artists and their crew’s incomes. To help address this impact, the Club teamed up with Hands Up for Trad to launch the Folk in Crisis Fund to help support Folk musicians and music production staff living in Scotland during the crisis.
To date (April 2021) the club's initial £5k donation has been boosted by donations from other clubs and individuals to a staggering £21,510.
More than 70 folkies have benefited from a grant or concert fee. We continue to fund-raise and donations may be made via the Fund’s JustGiving page.
There are still funds available, so any affected individuals wishing to apply for a grant please click here
