Music is good for the soul

Daniel from West Denton decided to learn the harmonica at the age of 35. He is now a musical talent to be reckoned with and has chosen to support St Oswald’s through his musical endeavours.

Daniel said:

I started playing the harmonica when I was 35 years old, it took me a whole month before I could even play a note. I’ve now been playing the harmonica for 7 years and I love it. Thinking what else I could do, I decided to make a CD. After speaking with my mother, and a little help from company ‘Music for the Soul’ I put together my CD and started promoting it online.

I used to work at St Oswald’s with my fellow musicians Steve Scotland and Ken Cross. We performed on a monthly basis to keep the patients and staff entertained as well as help with music therapy sessions for the Children. After that, I wanted to support St Oswald’s as I was so impressed by the care given to the patients. So far I have donated over £500 to the Hospice and I’m looking for this total to grow.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Dan for all of his support. You can listen and buy Dan’s album via bandcamp here: https://danburrows.bandcamp.com/
