Juke Box Days!

July 6, 2021

Alzheimer Scotland presents Juke Box Days, a reminiscence initiative hosted by Michael White of Screen Memories Scotland, that focuses on the Golden Age of Rock and Roll, basically from 1956 to 1976. A specific year is chosen, and group members can select their own choices of music. As well as the songs themselves, there are memory triggers for social and cultural aspects such as fashion, hairstyles, news events, famous people and food and drink. This sets the context for the songs and the music of the period.
The Transatlantic Jukebox Session this week is on Thursday 8th July 2021 at 4pm with North Carolina.

Can we please request that all participants switch to MUTE once the music starts or until requested when joining in on the interactive part. This will prevent any feedback noise which can affect the enjoyment of other attendees.

Dementia Friendly Concert

January 26, 2021

In partnership with Celtic Connections 2021

The benefits of music in unlocking memories, reducing stress and anxiety while also helping maintain speech and language, are increasingly recognised. Please join us for a relaxed afternoon performance by Catherine Tinney & Luc McNally recorded in Tramway as part of Celtic Connections 2021.

As you will be aware, it’s difficult to make online events dementia friendly, but both performances are relaxed sets that last around 30-40 mins and give people a taste of the festival. https://youtu.be/ANY5eWTa1-k
