Unprecedented times, eh? Music and how it, its creators and presenters work is, like everyone else, adapting to unprecedented challenges. So we’re launching TUSK TV, TUSK Editions and we’re launching our first Membership scheme.

This is our response to the Covid/Brexit double-headed hydra. This is how we hope to survive it.

In this world of shifting sands and unpredictable tides, we invite our audience to become TUSK members. From as little at £7 monthly, supporters will receive the monthly TUSK Editions direct to their inbox and other occasional treats and freebies.

Please sign up here and from April 2 you will receive the monthly issues of TUSK Editions and help us to keep doing what we do – www.patreon.com/TUSKmusic
