The GDMT appreciate that many of our Scottish traditional musicians exist from gig to gig and all of their planned performances have been cancelled outwith their control so we thought we would offer to help a wee bit where we can.
Self-employed, professional Scottish traditional musicians who have limited savings and require some financial assistance can apply for a 2021 Performance Award. Successful applicants this year will receive an award of £300.
We anticipate high demand for this fund and we are a small charity with limited funds so we have a ceiling on how much we can assist.
Contributions to help are very gratefully received. In 2020 we awarded the amount of £4,000 to applicants. We also received donations to our 2020 Performance Awards donations campaign of £1,755.
