After another weekend of protests & demonstrations, the only form of mass gathering that has happened in over two months, Blue Collar Conversations asks...

What does the Summer of 2020 have in store for us and will mass gatherings this summer only be ones of protest? 

COVID-19 has certainly changed how we come together, with concerts, music festivals, pride events, theatre shows all disappearing for the foreseeable future - and if these live events go - then so do the livelihood of millions of our country’s musicians. 

How can we reverse that? And bring people back together to celebrate? 

To help us answer how Covid has changed the music industry we speak to 5 industry experts:

1) Chris Wright, founder of Chrysalis Records (01:30)

2) Ed Barker, former saxophone soloist for George Michael (09:04)

3) Natalia Bonner, violinist, providing the music for film soundtracks & tours performing Chamber music (13:35)

4) Mark Radcliffe, Broadcaster, writer & producer (19:33)

5) Peter Nicholson, founder of Sound Level Events in Southampton (24:30)
