This week we welcomed Matt from Rewind Music & Reminiscence to play a back to back set for us; first at Vida Hall in Starbeck then over to Vida Grange in Pannal. He’s a firm favourite with residents and families, thanks to his interactive, engaging performances.
Alongside the music, Matt encourages participation using musical instruments, singing and quizzes as well as showing images of musical icons to help trigger memories and encourage conversation. This week’s theme was Rock’n’Roll, transporting everyone back to their teenage years!
Following on from one of Matt’s previous performances, a family member told us: “It was brilliant to see mum really enjoying herself and singing to the music. Please come back soon!”
