Please share a photo from a live concert or gig before lockdown. Our entire industry is facing a catastrophic loss of skills with up to 50% facing unemployment #LetTheMusicPlay 🙏🏻


#LetTheMusicPlay What I see in this video, beyond the great music and sense of occasion, is that incomparable human connection that traditional music gives us. Let's fight our corner to bring this back as soon as it's safe to do so. Fingers crossed for @ccfest 2021 @FionaHyslop https://twitter.com/ccfest/status/1278625250603909125

Despite many businesses returning in the coming weeks the live music industry faces many more months of uncertainty. The sector supports 210,000 jobs in the UK alone yet are still in the dark with no focused support or guidelines. Please support this campaign ❤️#LetTheMusicPlay

Our industry is in crisis. Help us today to urge the government to save the live music scene by posting pic of last gig played/attended and using #LetTheMusicPlay. Capercaillie @ccfest

You an get hammered in a pub and fall all over the place but you can’t sit at a table in the upstairs room (or a village hall) enjoy a couple of drinks and listen to some live music? #letthemuusicplay #musicbeforebooze #artbeforebooze https://twitter.com/BobTheHepCat/status/1278600828467757056


This is a short clip of my last live gig, at @squarechapel accompanied by @jennbutterworth, before the pandemic struck.

What was the last live gig you went to?

Help show the importance of the UK’s music sector by making some noise on social media !

Live music is so good for the soul!It connects people and reassures us in hard times.I could do with a big live music hug right now!Going forward the industry needs help to survive #LetTheMusicPlay


My last festival! @ccfest 2020. Hard to see how gigs like this, with this kind of capacity will return to normal. Without government help we could lose venues like the Barrowland. Venues like these create so many jobs for people in the industry! #LetTheMusicPlay @TheBarrowlands https://twitter.com/GritOrchestra/status/1278577995490496512

The last pre-lockdown live show we played at the Lemon Tree 🧡
