The Tragically Hip are offering help to Canadian musicians who have been struggling during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The band says they are selling reusable, non-medical cloth masks with the word “Courage” — the title of one of their most popular songs — printed on the front.
All of the proceeds from the mask sales will go towards the Unison Benevolent Fund, which is offering a COVID-19 relief emergency relief to musicians and crew members struggling during the pandemic.
“With venues shuttered and tours cancelled for the foreseeable future, the need has never been greater. Please spare a thought and prayer for all folks in the arts during these difficult times,” a statement from the band said on its website.
The masks can be purchased on The Tragically Hip’s website for $15.
