‘Whole Lotta Roadies’ project fund now open for live crew in Scotland

13 Jan 2021


The Fruit Tree Foundation’s ‘Whole Lotta Roadies’ project fund is now open to live touring crew who live in Scotland.

Last year, The Fruit Tree Foundation announced the creation of a brand-new unique album, ‘Whole Lotta Roadies’, put together by some of Scotland’s most loved musical artists and their crew. The project was the idea of Rod Jones of Idlewild, who saw first-hand the devastating effect the pandemic was having on all aspects of live shows, and in particular, those who rely on live events for a living.

Released in December 2020, the album features songs from Belle and Sebastian, Mogwai, Twin Atlantic, Arab Strap, The Proclaimers, KT Tunstall, Fatherson, Emma Pollock, Honeyblood, Kathryn Joseph, The Rezillos, The Xcerts, and Idlewild – as well as their crew.

Revenue raised from sales of the album has allowed a fund to be established to support touring crew across Scotland who are currently unable to work due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

To help as many crew as possible, the exact amount distributed per person will depend on the number of applications received.

Applications close at 6pm on the 31st of January.

Please contact hello@aimlessplay.com with any questions.
