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.
