A Birmingham Thank You

(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.
