This 6/8 waltz, written by Martin Gillespie of Skerryvore was written to pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of NHS staff, volunteers and other key workers who are risking so much to fight COVID-19 and keep us all safe. All proceeds from the single released by Skerryvore will go to the NHS Charities COVID-19 Urgent Appeal. Donate to the NHS Charities COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.
The track will be released on Tyree Records. All proceeds from any digital downloads will also go to the charity fund.
Martin is asking musicians to join together to play the tune at 8pm on Thursdays, as part of the weekly tribute to our NHS workers.
Martin says “Please to spread the word to all the musicians (professionals, amateurs, instrument owners) that you know and let’s join forces to thank the Everyday Heroes as we clap for carers this week.
You can find the audio and sheet music on the Skerryvore website
