Hannabiell Saunders and Midnight Blue Collective delivered 5 performances on Tuesday 22nd December 2020 and 5 more on Wednesday 23 December 2020, outdoors in Lifeline service locations across the Borough. Performances were supported by Creative Darlington and sought to bring cheer to families with upbeat Christmas carols fused with African and Latin rhythm, to safely bring live music to the doorsteps of people who might otherwise have limited opportunities to enjoy live music, and to support musicians and freelancers during these difficult times.
This programme attracted many positive comments, two of which are shown below:
“Thank you so very very much you were fantastic. Everyone really loved listening to your music in the sunshine, made us all feel a little more Christmassy.”
“What an excellent treat for the tenants today from Hannabiell and her band, there were absolutely swinging, and all tenants have enjoyed it so much great to see so many dancing and watching it was great certainly upped everyone’s spirits.”
