Here’s hoping everyone is holding up while holed up. On today’s program, we bring you an honest conversation with Erin Benjamin, the president and CEO of the Canadian Live Music Association, going over the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the association’s members and larger performance market in Canada.
Let’s be clear: the scenario is dire, and there’s updated data to show it; nevertheless, the CLMA is working hard by promoting the federal government to recognize and help the industry through these challenges and has been making inroads. We get into these and other efforts the association is spearheading, including partnerships with fellow music market stakeholders, and share pointers on how anyone listening can take action.
