A preview of Track 9 of For Now an unfolding album.
The final track of Part II is dedicated to Action for Children. Previously known as the National Children’s Home, this charity ran the orphanage in Whitby, Yorkshire, that took in my grandad, Lawrence Kidd, in the 1920s.
For Love, Labour, Loss weaves some of my memories of Lawrence together - a mixture of nostalgia, joy and sadness on his passing. The song features two amazing instrumentalists: Laetitia Stott as melodious French Horn and Stephanie Oatridge as lyrical Oboe.
You can get the full song on & amazon mp3.

For Now is an unfolding album written for the Internet.
Direct, energizing, but also deeply thoughtful, these ‘songs without words’ are drawn from experiences mundane & intense - written as a companion for both activity and reflection.
