John Reed - The "Storytellah fellah" came to CPM!
On Friday 20th April we had an exciting visitor come to see us at Cerebral Palsy Midlands and he was called John Reed, also known as the "storyteller fella" who came to tell us all about The Beatles Story.
John Reed is an experienced story teller and mixes together music with stories to produce an interesting, funny and entertaining time for his audience. It's a very good way of reducing loneliness and social isolation as well as improving general well being.
We learned about the history of 'The Beatles' Music mainly between the years of 1962 and 1966 which was when the group were at their fame. We listened to many tracks and remembered good memories, songs we listened to included; 'Love me Do', 'From me to you', 'She loves you', 'I wanna hold your hand', 'Hard Days Night' 'Help', 'Yellow Submarine', and 'Eleanor Rigby' and more. With over 800 million tracks sold and more number ones than any other musical act, it was interesting hearing of how they come to fame.
