The Songaminute Man

27 October, 2016

I recently wrote an arrangement for The Songaminute Man a.k.a. Teddy Mac, recorded with The Guy Barker Big Band and 80-year-old Teddy himself on vocals.

Teddy has dementia, and music -which has been a significant part of his life – has helped him throughout his illness. His story is inspirational, and it has been an honour to be involved.

Teddy’s single raises awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Society and you’ll be doing your bit for a good cause if you buy it. Have a listen here:
