I Am The Song – now available

Mon, 8th Jul 2024

I Am The Song’ written by Boo Hewerdine is now available. Included in the final recording are vocals from members of Let’s Sing, guitar and vocals from Boo Hewerdine, vocals from award-winning singer Hannah Rarity, and percussion/drums by Iain Sandilands.

Let’s Sing led by song leader, singer, and composer Penny Stone, meets weekly in Musselburgh, East Lothian and supports people living with dementia in the local community by learning and singing a cappella harmony songs together. Working with Penny and Stephen Deazley, who is Luminate’s Community Music Consultant, the choir recorded I Am The Song at Castlesound Studios in just two hours.

I Am The Song builds on the success of Travel These Ways – our earlier collection of songs created during the pandemic for people living with dementia. Travel These Ways included two songs by award-winning musician Karine Polwart and is still available online to download from our website.

The Dementia Inclusive Singing Network includes singing groups and choirs based all over Scotland, as well as other community groups and care providers who recognise the benefits of singing, and the positive difference it can make to health and wellbeing.

The final recorded versions of I Am The Song, including an accompaniment for groups to sing along with, downloadable lyrics, and sheet music is free to use on a Creative Commons licence.
