Daniel Rachel

Daniel Rachel at Trinity Academy with Mike Nicholson

Last night, author Daniel Rachel was at the school talking about his book of interviews and conversations with with great British songwriters. It was fascinating to hear about the artists he met while researching his book, Isle of Noises — Ray Davies, Johnny Marr, Noel Gallagher, Laura Marling, Billy Bragg, Sting and many more.

For anyone interested in music this was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the craft and skill that goes into writing music and song lyrics. Funds raised last night will go towards an improved lighting and sound system for the school and benefit the musical life of the school.

Thank you Daniel for coming to Trinity and to parent Mike Nicholson for arranging the evening and interviewing Daniel.
