Welcome to the first interview from The Great Escape festival in May. This interview was with Ruth Patterson, the lead singer of Holy Moly & The Crackers, but as well as being a front woman to her band, she is also a speaker about disabled artists in the industry.
We sit down with Ruth and talk about the charity Attitude is Everything that she has been working with recently. They published a report recently (see link below) about the harrowing experiences that disabled artists have in the industry.
It's time for this topic to be talked about more, for industry experts and venue owners to start respecting and endorsing more help and also for fans to respect disabled artists as normal people and not heroes for getting up onto the stage.
