I just posted about a gig in this section instead of the correct one, so I've deleted what I wrote, and instead am contributing something here too - why not?! Listened to Desert Island Discs for the second time this week - enjoying enough not to switch stations to hear trumpeter Alison Balsom recount her rise to stardom in a relatively non-musical family and underline the importance of music lessons and access to instruments for all. My sister benefited from one such programme, not I!
