Mike Lowe, chair of Stagehand’s Board of Trustees, commented: “The livelihoods of people working in live music productions has been decimated by the effects of Covid-19. Every day we hear from people who are struggling and Stagehand is raising funds to help those in most need, with the simple aim of helping to keep roofs over heads and food on tables.”

The launch of Prints For Music for Stagehand was organised by photographer Ed Robinson who is also selling some of his prints to raise funds. 

“Like so many others, the struggles of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected me deeply on a personal level as well as professionally,” said Robinson. “I have reached out to the people I know in the music and photographic industries with the simple idea to try to help those who are not getting the support they need to survive this crisis. For many photographers who have been privileged enough to have been given access to photograph these artists, it has only been made possible by the efforts of their production teams. None of these photographs would have been possible without the artists and those who support them. This initiative is our way of giving back in their time of need. It will help preserve their livelihoods and enable the shows to go on in the future.”  

The sale is open on www.printsformusic.com until 21st December 2020.
