For seven years The Buddy Holly Education Foundation have funded the residential retreats hosted by Chris at Pennard House in Somerset. Honouring the legacy of Buddy Holly and his widow Elena, the foundation strive to make musical education accessible for all. We are thrilled that along with becoming Patrons that the foundation have now also committed to paying for two songwriters each month to attend the Songwriters Garden online. We are proud to be associated with them and are so grateful for their ongoing support.
During lockdown Help Musicians were tireless in their support of musicians, immediately acknowledging the devastating impact Covid19 had on the industry as a whole. Over a six -month period they sponsored well over 100 musicians to take part in songwriting workshops with Chris, hosted on-line. We are indebted to their generosity and for the difference they made for so many, shining a much-needed light when all the stages went dark. We are honoured that they have agreed to become patrons and are in awe of the wonderful work that they do.
