Tragically Hip Selling 'The Unison T-Shirt' to Support Canadian Music Industry Charity

With all proceeds to be donated to The Unison Fund – Canada’s music industry charity, providing counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community – The Tragically Hip have announced a limited run of The Unison T-Shirt, as seen worn by the band while accepting the 2021 Humanitarian Award during the 50th annual Juno Awards broadcast on June 6th.

Says Rob Baker, lead guitarist of The Tragically Hip, “We’ve all missed live music, but for the folks who have devoted their lives to bringing music to you – the stage, sound and lighting techs, the staff of music venues and the other unsung personnel – for them this past year and a half has been devastating. This is our chance to let them know how much we appreciate their often thankless work. What would you spend on a night out at your favourite club? What would a ticket cost to see a favourite act at your local megadome? For a fraction of that price you can make a difference and make sure we hit the ground running. See ya at the club.”

Long-time champions of The Unison Fund, earlier this year The Tragically Hip donated over $50,000 through the sale of their Courage Masks, and just last month were announced as supporters of Band Together In Unison, a million-dollar charitable campaign in support of The Unison Fund’s continued efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic’s financial and psychological devastation of the Canadian music industry.
