(See previous post). Pictured at the final concert of this season are BCMG's departing Executive Producer, Jackie Newbould (left) and Artistic Director, Stephen Newbould (right) with BCMG's co-founder and first director, Simon Clugston (centre). Second from right is storyteller and writer Vayu Naidu, formerly Birmingham-based, with whom I and BCMG made several storytelling tours in England and India over a ten-year period.. Having raised £350,000 for new music commissions via the Sound Investment scheme, Stephen and Jackie proceeded to raise another £10,000 (and counting) for BCMG's future by climbing 15 Snowdonian mountains in 24 hours. How lucky I've been to work with all these generous people.
