Yvonne Lyon new single on Revival FM

Yvonne Lyon’s new single ‘Till We Meet Again’ is taken from a collection of songs written for her Masters Degree in Songwriting and Performance, researching the connection between song-writing and grief.  The song and others from Yvonne will be featured on Tuesday, 25 April night’s Celtic Fusion programme on 100.8 Revival FM.

The song was co-written with a friend, Angela Beggan, who tragically lost her six year old son, Caden to meningococcal septicaemia.

They poured their story into metaphor and discovered that lyric and melody provided a safe place to share trauma and loss.  Through the creative process they found that their song became a vessel to hold grief, offering consolation and providing some connection to the future.

It is Yvonne’s hope that Till We Meet Again can continue in the great tradition of song writing by providing catharsis in the midst of dark and troubled times.

Yvonne Lyon is among Scotland’s and indeed the UK’s brightest and best singer-songwriters.

Celtic Fusion, Tuesday 25 April 8.00-10.00pm and repeated Saturday 29 April at 5.00-7.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.

Aileen Suttie posted on FB a short video from her phone on what she said was a “fantastic second night at RSNO New Auditorium within The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with The Celebration Choir.”  Aileen added: “This wee video shows how amazing you were!”  View the video on The Celebration Choir FB page here.

Concert goer Iain Young posted on FB: “Sounding amazing as ever and I can’t wait to be back for Christmas” while Linda Suttie commented: “A wonderful evening of Worship and Praise lead by so many gifted singers and musicians.  Thank you all for your hard work! Andrew’s question from Pilate is a lasting reminder of God’s gracious gift. Happy Easter.

Kerry Moore on the Revival FM FB page posted: “We had a wonderful and blessed time tonight, thank you so much!”
