Face masks bearing the name of the Tragically Hip’s popular song Courage have raised more than $40,000 in support of Canada’s music industry.

The Kingston band started selling the cloth masks last summer for $15 each on its web store to support the   Unison Benevolent Fund.

The organization provides counselling and emergency relief services to the music industry, which has been pummeled by the pandemic as live musicians and their crews have been unable to tour.

Hip front man Gord Downie died in 2017 from a brain tumour. He’s widely regarded as one of the most influential and popular artists in Canadian music history.
