Singer-songwriter embarks on tour of AWP services
Acclaimed British singer-songwriter Emily Maguire has today
started her tour of AWP hospitals and services. Over the coming
weeks she'll perform at a number of Trust sites across the region
bringing her live music to our service users, carers and members of
Emily is known for her strong, thought-provoking lyrics and her
songs have been played regularly on Radio 2. She has done a lot of
work to raise awareness of mental health issues through her music
and by sharing her own experiences, and when she's performed for
AWP in the past - she performed at Callington Road Hospital and
Fromeside in 2011 and more recently at the Staff Awards 2013
ceremony - her performances have been described as moving.
With this tour she will reach many of our service users, some of
whom have limited opportunity to enjoy live music, and will provide
an uplifting and welcome experience that is bound to inspire.
