Music Venue Trust address a year without Live Music
We begin this week’s roundup of the best music news with a somewhat sombre milestone. This week marked an entire calendar year since most music venues hosted their last show and closed their doors.
With the coronavirus pandemic continuing, but with a glimmer of hope on the horizon, the Music Venue Trust has issued a pertinent statement. The trust has worked tirelessly to cement the future of live music.
Without our grassroots venues future talent would have nowhere to hone their craft. Many will be forever grateful to the Music Venue Trust for their work during this unique and terrifying year. You can read their full statement on their Facebook page here.
