Wednesday, October 28th, 2020

Many of us have seen recently how music can be used as great therapy with many medical conditions.

Through Lockdown we have seen music bring much joy and consolation to people who are living remotely or housebound; indeed it brings joy to all of us and can raise the spirits at any time.

A fine example of this has come into the spotlight this week.

And most importantly given him a new lease of life.
