Weʼre raising £5,000 to Folk In Crisis Support Fund

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Stonehaven Folk Club recognizes the catastrophic impact that Covid-19 has had on Scottish Folk Artists and their crew’s incomes. To help address this impact, the Club has teamed up with Hands Up for Trad to start up a fund to help support Folk musicians and music production staff living in Scotland during the crisis.

To launch the Fund, Stonehaven Folk Club has donated £5000 to provide 20 grants of £250 to help towards living expenses during this period when affected individuals are unable to work. It is hoped that the fund, and the help it can provide, will be doubled by further donations from other organisations and the public.

If you would like to help please donate to this fund. If you have any questions please Contact Hands Up for Trad.

      What a great initiative - it’s just a pity that it’s needed. Can’t wait to hear live music again!
