Don't Stop - We Won't

2020 was a devestating year for the live arts and entertainment industry and that 2021 may well be just as bad.

Many individual musicians, stage crew and venues are facing a bleak future, so to help we've put together some of the finest Americana and blues artists from the UK, and one from the US, and created a version of Fleetwood Mac’s Don’t Stop.

Part download single, part video project, all profits will go to helping industry charities like Help Musicians UK, The Music Venue Trust and Stagehand.

Who’s involved?

The line-up that includes one of the UK’s best songwriters Boo Hewerdine, the award-winning Elles Bailey, one-man blues explosion Son of Dave, the wonderful vocal talents of Lady Nade, singer-songwriters Sean Taylor and Paul McClure, Curse of Lono’s Felix Bechtolsheimer and Joe Hazell and Nashville country star Kaitlyn Baker.

With the Hope & Social Horns, Joe Wilkins on lead guitar, award-winning instrumentalist Thomas Collinson on keyboards and Steve White on drums.

They are collectively known as The Glovebox All Stars.

We’re also really lucky to have the producing talent of the wonderful Tony Poole (Bennett Wilson Poole) and the editing skills of Josh Coombes. 

The organisations we’re raising funds for

For almost 100 years, Help Musicians has been providing help, support and opportunities to empower musicians at all stages of their lives.

They are an independent charity which aims to make a meaningful difference to the lives of musicians by offering a wide spectrum of support. Working in partnership with others to grow our impact, Help Musicians is passionate about creating a world where musicians thrive.

 Music Venue Trust is a registered charity created in 2014 to protect, secure and improve the UK's Grassroots Music Venues for the benefit of venues, communities and artists. There are over 900 venues in our Music Venues Alliance community, which we work to sustain through lobbying, support, advice and fundraising.

 Stagehand is a UK registered charity, formed 20 years ago by members of the Production Services Association to help its members, crew and technicians in the field of live event production, if they fall on hard times through illness or injury.

Don’t Stop will be released free on Bandcamp on Friday 5 March and the videos will be on YouTube from the same date.
