Our Musician Spotlight for November is Sian Francis, who has been working with us in Wales since 2018 and is well loved for both her lively interactive sessions and calming Lullaby Hour sessions for babies and children.
How did you first get involved with Music in Hospitals & Care?
I joined Music in Hospitals & Care after seeing a post on Facebook about Lullaby Hour starting in the North of England. I knew then that I needed to be involved and started fundraising to enable Lullaby Hour sessions to start in Wales. It’s been a great journey since then becoming a musician and also an ambassador for the charity.
What have been some of your highlights?
The Lullaby Hour sessions are so magical and rewarding. Being able to visit a bedside and sing a child’s favourite song is something that I’m truly thankful for.
How have the live stream Lullaby Hour sessions been?
The live stream sessions are different from the face to face encounters but are still exciting and rewarding. Social media gives your the possibility to perform to a whole host of children nationally and around the world. We’ve had children from Australia tune in!
Please give today to help improve the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.
