May 2014 – International Communication Project Month of Action #ICP2014 #ukulele

The International Communication Project 2014 (ICP2014) aims to spread the word about the vital importance of communication to all aspects of our lives and the critical difference that communication professionals can make – especially when they are involved early.

More information: ICP2014 – Giving Voice UK

The Giving Voice UK Campaign has been running since 2011.

This is a song I wrote for the campaign in 2011.  I was thrilled when Julie Carr used it as the soundtrack for her video of the “Giving Voice Communication Chain” event that she organised on The Tyne Millennium Bridge!

Julie Carr SLT is running another NETA Fundraising Event starring Lost Voice Guy! A chance to laugh yourself silly in a good cause!

Julie has kindly asked me to do my “Giving Voice” ukulele song again at this event too.

Had great fun doing it the last time – can’t believe it was nearly two years ago!

Mystic Moonshine – So you want to know what the future holds?

Mystic Moonshine – Ukulele Original – Liz Panton

True story – names and locations changed ever so slightly to protect the guilty!

Very pleased with myself that I managed to write it the morning of 1st January 2013 and then performed it the same afternoon at Strings Attached Folk Club – a good start to the New Year. I didn’t have much time to think about the music though so I just did it in C, F and G that time.
