Last Friday I took part in a real life storytelling event. Hosted by Touch CIC and held at Temple Street Canteen, it was an opportunity to talk about a part of your life with a rough theme of 'overcoming adversity'. Having been to the previous event and feeling it'd be something I'd like to be involved with, I signed up immediately. The organiser, Jen, was nothing but wonderful and supportive throughout, really helping me to spin out what had initially started as just a footnote into the entire talk.
What I ended up discussing was the moments where I made connections to my three instruments, that of singing, guitar and piano, and then the steps I took after that to move into a world of being a professional musician, via university, call centres, Admiral Car Insurance, night school, computer programming, and then finally becoming a musician.
The talk itself was recorded and be streamed here:
