Our Stories

“I’d forgotten how much I love music. It takes you away from everyday life and brings you into a completely new world. It uplifted my emotions and put a smile on my face.”
Keshia, parent carer and member of Lifted Carers Centre, Wythenshawe

From the Scottish Highlands to the Channel Islands, from Northern Ireland to the Welsh Valleys, our professional musicians share live music with people of all ages. This includes everyone from premature babies in hospitals, to people living with dementia in care homes.

Edinburgh: Eden Ward

We do have some patients that are here longer term and it becomes part of their routine – a little light in the week that they can work towards.

Belfast: Edelle McMahon

Live streams gave people an anchor in their week, so they knew on Tuesday afternoons it was Music and Memories. It helped people to feel less isolated.

Wythenshawe: Keshia's story

I’d forgotten how much I love music. It takes you away from everyday life and brings you into a completely new world. It uplifted my emotions and put a smile on my face.

Haslemere: Marilyn's story

Marilyn had an accident which left her with brain damage and she has relatively low awareness and is often asleep. But when there’s good live music going on, she reacts to it. She is more awake and it makes a big difference to her wellbeing.

Bridgend: Alan's story

"That element of having live music performance was really uplifting, it was really engaging. It was so nice to see everybody smiling and joining in, and people who hadn't joined in the previous sessions, who were encouraged to come along for the live session, have now said that they are going to continue to come every week."
