Next Saturday, Jackson’s idea to raise money for CALM ( inspired by Reading Bus Co.’s annual charity) will see a dozen or so around the piano. Good vibes ! Three eleven year olds carolling away. Piano accompaniment on my long departed father’s sixty year old Baby- Grand. This he bought after finally winning a court- case following his disabling car crash… and which he played for hours, to the point of exhaustion. ‘A Nightingale sang, in Berkeley Square’ genre.
So present in the room will be young boys’ enthusiasm, an older man’s courage, and the men whom CALM calls on us to hear.
