About

”Songs From Here” was established in 2021 and is a partnership project between people living with dementia and their carers, Acorn Shed Music and Ceartas Advocacy Service in East Dunbartonshire. Our aim is to create interactive sessions that are fun and varied, including story sharing and song writing activities. We sing our own compositions as well as popular favourites suggested by those who attend the sessions…..and we always start each session with a cuppa, biscuits and a blether!

You can hear examples of our music via links below:
