*Kirrie Connections is a dementia friendly community hub. We offer information, advice and support to people living with dementia, their carers and families.

**Gus Harrower is a singer/songwriter, billed as one of Scotland’s most innovative young musicians. In addition to performing his own music, he is a session musician with other Scottish talent, notably Callum Beattie whose album is topping this week's charts. Gus also works with people living with dementia, hosting music sessions at Capital Theatre, Edinburgh, and writing songs alongside people at STAND (Striving Towards A New Day) in Fife. Gus will perform some of these songs for us and tell us about this work.
