I AM EXTREMELY THANKFUL TO PAUL
RELLINGER (PETERBOROUGH THIS WEEK), FOR INCLUDING ME IN THIS
INFORMATIVE ARTICLE ON SOME OF OUR LOCAL MUSICIANS!
Thanks Paul! :)
FOCUS: For these 9 musicians,
having the music in them was a game changer
This Week 3-part series
To the benefit of thousands over many years, Peterborough musicians
got the music in them at an early age and never sought a cure.
or the beneficiary of formal lessons, often both; inspired by the music
of their generation or eras past, again often both; each started a journey
that defined who they are.
as varied as their backgrounds are, they share a bond that is uniquely
theirs each couldnt imagine their life today without music
and their ability to perform it.
