Embrace Music is a social enterprise fronted by Sadhbh and Sharon Murphy. For the last seven years they have worked both together and separately in County Kildare running community choirs and delivering music sessions to people living with dementia and other age-related illnesses. The overall aim of Embrace Music is to give people as many different opportunities to embrace music, movement and other art forms as possible in their own locality, or even in their own home.
Projects to date include:
Weekly livestream music sessions for nursing homes, cocooners and home carers.
These can be accessed every Friday morning at 11am on www.facebook.com.com/embracemusicireland
'Calming Covers', an album in aid of the Kildare Samaritans, featuring 10 Kildare artists singing songs that bring them comfort.
