Fran Healy will kick off the Save Our Scottish Venues Festival next Thursday (18 June). The full event, which will be split across three stages, takes place next Friday (19 June).
Beverley Whitrick, the Strategic Director of Music Venue Trust says, "There are over 60 Scottish members of the Music Venues Alliance, each of which is essential to the music ecosystem as social, economic and cultural hubs within their communities. The love that artists have for these spaces and the people who run them is clear from everyone stepping forward to help raise money to support venues through the crisis. Please enjoy these events and donate what you can to help."
