Help Musicians warns that Covid-19 catastrophe is not over

UK-based charity Help Musicians surveyed British professional musicians a year ago and found that 55% were not earning anything at all from music, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Have things improved? They have a bit: a new survey conducted by the charity in August 2021 found that the percentage earning nothing from their music has fallen to 33%.

It’s still a third though, with 83% saying that ‘an inconsistency of bookings is stalling their ability to get their careers back on track’ and that 22% are considering leaving the industry.
