Having worked with Martha before, we were delighted to be asked to work on the sleeve for her latest project ‘Just Sing’.
The project celebrates and showcases the innate creativity of older adults who are affected by loneliness and social isolation. The unique beauty of this project is that the lyrics and melodies of these wonderful songs had been created by the senior songwriters (mostly 80s – 100 years old!) during group songwriting workshops facilitated by Martha Middlemiss in 2018 at Dunbar and North Berwick Day Centres, East Lothian, Scotland.
The cover shot shows Eric Smith, one of the members dancing with his wife on stage in Paris during the fifties, and the photo of him receiving his copy of the album melts my heart!
