Inka Wood’s First Steps

Inka Wood’s First Steps

Three-year-old Inka Wood suffers from spastic diplegic cerebral palsy which causes stiffness and tightness in the muscles. It makes walking and standing very difficult and following her diagnosis as an 18-month-old she was given a frame to help with her movement.
 

But she has taken her very first steps after hearing ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’.

The amazing moment spurred the parents to raise money for treatment which could eventually allow Inka to walk independently. The family have already raised more than £12,000 and are now asking people to walk 500 miles. 

Craig and Charlie commented, “We are absolutely delighted to hear of this tremendous news.
Congratulations to Holly and John for setting up the charity and we wish them and Inka all the very best for the future.”
 
 
Glastonbury 89 – I’m Gonna Burn Your Playhouse Down

Glastonbury 89 – I’m Gonna Burn Your Playhouse Down

A year ago in the midst of an exceptional summer schedule of huge live events, The Proclaimers were on The Pyramid Stage making their 7th Glastonbury appearance.

 

Here is one from way back, I’m Gonna Burn Your Playhouse Down recorded live at Glastonbury in 1989 also on The Pyramid Stage.  This was bowing out in style as it was the very last appearance on the Sunshine On Leith world tour, 10 months that had seen 145 concerts in 18 countries.

We are deeply saddened at Colin’s passing. Always a delight to meet and an incredible passion and knowledge for music.
In his time at Radio Forth, from our debut single onwards, we were always exceptionally grateful for his enthusiasm and support.

Virtual choir performance of Sunshine on Leith

Virtual choir performance of Sunshine on Leith

A small amateur dramatics company in South Queensferry, Forth Dimension Musical Productions have been unable to hold their normal springtime concert. Instead, they decided to team up with another local choir Ferry Blend and do their own virtual choir performance of Sunshine on Leith.

 

Well done to everyone involved for this most charming and passionate rendition.
