Help Musicians Panel


The official charity partner of this year’s Glasgow Jazz Festival, ‘Help Musicians Scotland’ presents a free panel discussing how to build resilience surrounding your music career - putting your health and welfare before the needs of the industry and how time out for you doesn’t mean time out for your career.

The panel features Trad Music Award nominee Laura Wilkie, last year’s winner of the Jazz Festival’s ‘Rising Star’ Award Luca Manning and Edinburgh Fringe Festival sell-out artist  Joni Keen.

The panel will take place on Saturday 22nd June from 2.30pm – 4.30pm at The Blue Arrow on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow.
