Week 8 schedule:

Monday 18th May, 7pm

We share a short documentary looking back on ‘Songs from Above and Below’, a 2015 project involving Live Music Now artists in Wales and Scotland. The artists gathered stories from residents in care homes as they shared their memories of mining communities. As part of a special commission, composer John McLeod then wrote ‘Songs from Above and Below’ which was performed in community and arts venues around Scotland and Wales. Many thanks to the Scottish Arts Club for joining up with us this evening and sharing the video on their social media platforms.

Suitable for the general public.

Wednesday 20th May, 11am

We’re pleased to present a concert from Live Music Now Nederlands with dreamy, relaxing string music from Recuerdas, a duo consisting of Lauriane Ghils and Marta Gonzalez Perez. It was recorded last week and features haunting melodies on electric cello and a gentle song played on the African harp or ‘kora’.

Suitable for the general public.

Thursday 21st May, 7pm

The current pandemic is stressful for many people in many different ways and sleep can be difficult as a result. With this in mind, traditional Scottish musician Catriona Hawksworth presents a gentle, wind down concert of soothing piano music to prepare the body for sleep. We are scheduling this concert to tie in with Mental Health Awareness week which runs from 18th-24th May.

Suitable for the general public.

Friday 22nd May, 11am

Johannes Konig, a cellist from LMN Munich presents a short music video taking advantage of some great acoustics in an underground carpark. Johannes joined the Munich branch of Live Music Now in 2013.

Suitable for the general public.

Sunday 24th May, 7pm

We shared a lockdown concert back in week two of our #TogetheratHomeLMNS series from this fantastic duo. We’re delighted to present a new music video from fiddler Robbie Greig and acoustic guitarist Owen Sinclair, two traditional Scottish musicians with a dementia friendly programme.

Suitable for older people at home in isolation, those that would have attended day centres, those living in care homes, those living with dementia and suitable for the general public too.
