Like many artists, Cellar Darling have been hit hard by the Coronavirus pandemic and the associated lockdown measures and show cancellations. Rather than giving in or just asking for money without offering something in return, they’ve announced a campaign where they will provide exclusive content to fans straight from their own homes and rehearsal space, culminating in a live-streamed performance at Lucerne’s Soundfarm Studio. The campaign will begin on April 5 with a live Q&A session .
Throughout the campaign, fans can contribute by donating directly to the band. The stream itself is ‘pay-what-you-want’ and will also be available for free for those who can’t afford to contribute.
The band comment: “There’s no beating around the bush: we need your help. The recent cancellation of our European tour follows that of our shows in February and March. This means that we, like many artists and self-employed entertainment professionals, face massive expenses and a total loss of income of at least three months.
