Music 24’s Teela Hughes and Graeme Davis are head over heels with excitement.

The video they made showing how Dallow man Iain Warburton embraced his inner musician following a stroke five years ago has caught the attention of the British Association of Music Therapy.

As a result they’ve been invited to an exhibition at the Barbican in London which opens on Wednesday (September 3). It’s aimed at showcasing the valuable role music therapy plays in the community and raising awareness of how it helps some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

Teela, 27, of Lewsey Farm said: “We’re so pleased to have been recognised by BAMT – things don’t get much better than that!”
