YO Songsters @ Folkestone Songwriting Festival
Do you want to champion music and dementia?
Musical Walkabout's YO Songsters music group is an exciting collaboration of people living with a young onset dementia diagnosis, people in caregiving roles, health and social care professionals and music practitioners. We meet regularly to explore how music can bring joy and support wellbeing.
We are absolutely honoured to be supporting Michele Stodart as she opens this year's Folkestone Songwriting Festival with a concert at St Eanswythe's church on October 6th 2022. We'll be performing original material, and inviting you to celebrate this with us!
Please come and support YO Songsters, help us raise awareness about dementia and using music for wellbeing, and enjoy the amazing music we've been making together.
Come on a Musical Walkabout!
