Every so often a great show comes along that shakes you out of your comfort zone and takes you on an unexpected journey back into your past.
I first met Trevor Hills when he was in charge of the Music Shop in Ashford and he had a little studio above it where he created his amazing sounds. The most striking thing about Trevor to me was his total modesty. He could play anything in any key, key-boards, guitar, bass...anything. In fact he was one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever worked with, yet you would have never heard that from him. Trevor was totally unassuming and patient with those less talented than himself and he could come up with a brilliant guitar solo in one take in the studio and leave everyone speechless. The truth was he made us all look good and he didn’t take any credit for himself; he was a real talent.
Ok ...so the challenge was this, write a song with twenty seven to eight year olds, learn it and then perform it as the grand finale to celebrate six weeks of the Wriggle-room Writers project coming into a school to stimulate the children’s creative writing. Did I mention that this was to be done in a forty-five minute session??
