JACOB’S ‘CLAP FOR CARERS’ SHOW GOES VIRAL!

Our Jacob, who has been making a bit of a name for himself with these song clips, decided to play a couple of live acoustic numbers for the Clap For Carers NHS last Thursday night. He set himself up at 8pm on the grass outside the house, and after all of our clapping & pot-banging had started to wind down he gave us three songs on his guitar: Babylon by David Gray, Blackbird by The Beatles (both of which we managed to film, from the wings) and Give Me Love by George Harrison (which was where my phone’s memory ran out!).

We needn’t have worried about missing the last song, however: a neighbour further along the street, Rav, turned out to be a Producer for ITV, and after checking that it was OK with the artist himself, he launched his drone into the sky and grabbed his news camera, and filmed Give Me Love whilst our other neighbours gradually drifted over to listen, so we have it after all! Rav was inspired to dash back home, edit together a newsclip of the event, and sent it in to his ITV office. Good Morning Britain ran the clip several times the following morning, whenever they did a spot on the incredible nationwide show of support for ALL the carers doing such an unbelievable job for the rest of us. I’ve posted the tv footage below, followed by the first two songs Jacob played, which sadly never made the final cut:

It’s already Thursday again (funny how the weeks are rolling by) and even in this household we’re wondering if Jacob will feel like playing a couple more numbers this evening. We know from our village facebook page that a guy who is using a drone to make a video record of how each street is marking these Clap For Carers turnouts (its flight path planned, mapped, timed and announced well in advance) plans to be heading down our cul-de-sac tonight. Let’s hope it works in the rain…

  2. Mayta sent me the links to all your beautiful songs, both sung at home and outside your neighborhood. You were all sounding so good. A musical family making people feel better during this pandemic. Music always smooths the soul and thank you for sharing this. Hope you are all staying safe . Don’t know if Annamae has seen these but I can send them off to her. Take care and keep them coming. Joan
