RUSHfest Scotland is an annual event for fans of the Canadian band Rush. Founded in 2013 by Steve Brown (who is also running this crowdfunding campaign) RUSHfest Scotland has donated over £50,000 to cancer charities throughout the UK. Please see our main site for more information.

All profits from this album will be split equally between two charities - Glioblastoma Foundation Neil Peart Research Award in the USA and Cancer Support Scotland (registered charity SC012867).

This crowdfunding campaign is to help finance the production of an album of Rush songs played by Rush tribute bands and musicians from around the world. Rush themselves retired from touring in 2015 and, tragically, drummer Neil Peart was diagnosed with a brain tumour (glioblastoma) a year later. He passed away in January of this year.

This album "TRIBUTES - SONGS FOR NEIL VOL.1" is dedicated to Neil Peart and will hopefully be released on what would have been his 68th birthday on 12 September 2020. All going well, this will be an annual project - hence this year's is Vol.1.

Any amount you can donate will be sincerely appreciated. PLEASE BUY YOUR COPY IN ADVANCE. THIS PAGE IS FOR ADVANCE SALES AND DONATIONS. The £3500 target is to cover production and licencing expenses to make 300 CDs and 300 LPs on beautiful red vinyl, plus downloads. THIS WILL BE A COLLECTABLE LIMITED EDITION ALBUM - especially the coloured vinyl format with gorgeous artwork from CHARLIE ROY and PAUL TIPPETT - a professional art designer whose recent commissions have included David Bowie, Europe, Thin Lizzy, Thunder, It Bites and Lonely Robot. PLUS the wonderful HUGH SYME is putting some finishing touches to the artwork!


but please still order your copies by donating via this page.

All of the musicians, engineers, artists and graphic designers have given their time and tracks for free and no one is taking any profit from this project. All legal copyright licences will be paid.

In alphabetical order - 3 Snow Dogs (Brazil), Clockwork Angels (Scotland), Fleesh (Brazil), Jacob Moon (Canada), La Villa Strangiato (Italy), Lotus land (USA), Moving Pictures (Scotland), New World Men (Canada), The Rush tribute Project (USA), The Rushians (Netherlands) Bravado (England).
