One more thing… could we ask for your help please?

A selection of the Americana UK motley crew in a pub in Clitheroe in February last year while rain battered down outside - those were the days!

Hope you’ll forgive the extra post today. For the last 13 months, here at AUK we’ve had very little income since in common with most of the industry, a large proportion of our advertising revenue has collapsed, and we have donated 100% of our supporters’ scheme proceeds to Help Musicians UK in order to support musicians affected by the pandemic. From tomorrow, now that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, that scheme reverts back to supporting Americana UK’s running costs. If you do enjoy the site and are able to support us for £2 a month, the details are here. Or if you want to make a one-off donation you can do that here. Of course you might do this already – in which case please accept our massive gratitude. And if you’re not in a position to support us, thank you still for coming by here! As a team we’re really grateful for the time you the readers take to spend with the site, whether that’s a daily habit or an occasional dip in. Thanks everyone, sincerely.

Regardless of whether you’re able to help us or not, please do keep supporting charities such as Help Musicians UK if you can – they’ve been doing sterling work over the last year and there’s still so much more to do as an industry as we come out of this difficult period. Have a good weekend and here’s to happier times ahead.

Mark Whitfield, Editor.
