Guy Johnston has started performing live, socially distanced, concerts outside his local pub in the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset. It started as something for the village as the Clap for NHS ended and was so popular that Guy made a plee for other musicians to join him. His call was answered by double bassist and composer David Heyes and violist Lydia Lowndes-Northcott.
Guy said “It has been very surreal because I’ve been playing for myself for the last two months and so to be suddenly sharing music reminded me of that feeling of why we do it, which is that shared experience.”
