CHE Fund Story - Live Music Now Scotland
Live Music Now Scotland secured CHE funding to deliver its ‘Composing With Care’ project.
Earlier this year Live Music Now Scotland gathered together some of the talented musicians on its roster — Lizy Stirrat, Grant McFarlane, Yvonne Robertson and Ross Wilson, who all hail from Paisley in Renfrewshire, West Scotland — and invited them to perform in care homes around the region.
The outreach organisation secured CHE funding to deliver its ‘Composing With Care’ project.
Focusing on the historic Paisley Thread Mills, the musicians gathered stories from people in five older people’s care homes and day centres last year which were then used as inspiration by celebrated composer Savourna Stevenson to create a new piece of music for flute and guitar, entitled ‘Mill Memories’.
