As a presenter, there's nothing more exciting than getting up on a stage in front of the camera or behind the microphone for a live performance, and it’s the same for so many emerging musicians.
As I continue my journey as a Line Resident for Southern Rail to discover how music can transform lives, I visited The Eggtooth Project for a live music event in Hastings.
The Eggtooth Project is a group that offers specialist creative therapies to children and young people who have been experiencing some form of mental ill-health. The group offers a diverse range of therapies, from art and music therapy to outdoor and canine-assisted therapy.
After the event, I spoke with the founders, music mentors and musicians about how music therapy at The Eggtooth project has changed their lives for the better. Listen here:
Thank you once again to founders, Laura Clarke, Sally Greig and musicians Bibi, Marie White, Saskia Oats, Sam Brown, Ben and Milana for speaking with me. Also, huge congratulations to the whole Eggtooth Project team who have gone on to win The People’s Projects National Lottery Community Fund since we met, which is a testament of how powerful their work with musicians is and will continue to go on.
Thanks for listening and stay tuned for more of my journeys with Southern Rail and stories of how much is transforming lives.
