Artists ’n Residents
Setup by Jennie Muskett (musician) and Nick Cohen (Head of Production at World Heart Beat), Artists ’n Residents tackles the loneliness and difficult conditions found in UK care homes due to COVID-19. Jennie’s father (also a musician) is in a care home and was deeply saddened by the lack of visitors, day trips and live music during lockdown. To address this, every Wednesday, Artists ’n Residents bring the joy of live music direct from the homes of the country’s top musicians, straight to care home residents.
The musicians generously giving these concerts would normally be performing in the world’s top concert halls or recording film scores for Hollywood blockbusters. With concert halls and music venues currently closed, they are now performing especially for care homes all over the UK.
