    Episode 49 – Music Lawyers: Who Needs Them?

    If Your Only Thought Regarding Lawyers & Music Is That They Deal With All The Bad Things In The Music Business...Think Again!











    It's often said that musicians are pigeon holed by professionals. A range of stereotypes come to mind regarding laziness, unpredictability and flakiness. The thing is, it's true both ways. Many musicians feel anyone connected with business and legal matters are not to be trusted. If you're a musician, you need to listen to this interview with a practicing music lawyer. If you do have the former opinion, the following podcast will hopefully help change your mind.















    Jonathan Tait (or as he prefers to be called "Jonny") is one of Scotland's foremost creative industry lawyers. Jonny has built up a wealth of knowledge, experience through worked on some of Scotland's largest creative projects. In this interview he discusses the role of a music and creative industry lawyer and the work that they undertake.

    Episode 48 – Help Musicians: A Pandemic Lifeline!

    It Is Not An Overstatement To Say That The Charity "Help Musicians" Have Made The Difference Between Many Musicians Surviving Or Going Under Across The UK.











    The pandemic has hit so many people in all walks of live very hard. For many in the arts, the actual foundations that underpin their lives has been taken away; the opportunity to perform and earn a living.

    Help Musicians are one of several non governmental options available. If you are a musician or you know someone who is and they need financial and or other help, then please listen and share this podcast.















    David Culbert leads up a dedicated team in Glasgow, Scotland who give help to musicians across Scotland as part of the UK wide Help Musicians charity. Ged Brockie's interview with David includes finding out where this organisation came from, the work it does and the help it gave before the pandemic and during this trying time.
