Musicians have given us joy and healing through the hardest times.
Now it’s our turn.
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is proud to announce that charitable efforts this year have resulted in more than $3 million distributed to the music community in the Bay Area and across the country.
A BRIDGE FOR MUSIC VENUES
A LIFELINE FOR MUSICIANS
Over $2 Million Going Directly To Musicians
We want to thank all the viewers who generously donated funds to our partner Artist Relief during and after the broadcast to support musicians facing hardship due to COVID. Together we have raised over $500,000.
In addition, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass donated more than $1.6 million to directly support musicians both nationally in partnership with Artist Relief and in the Bay Area in partnership with the Center for Cultural Innovation and Alliance for California Traditional Arts.
Nearly 600 musicians in dire financial need will receive $2,000-$5,000 grants, providing a lifeline and a source of hope for artists who have contributed so much to our communities.
