Ceol is Cradh - musicians and mental health
I watched this very interesting documentary (in Gaelic and English with subtitles) by Mischa Macpherson on BBC Alba last night.
For those in the UK, you can watch it here:
Here’s the blurb:
"Where would we be without music and musicians? So many of us derive pleasure from their talent and ability to move us, cheer us up or perfectly express how we feel. But research has shown that the majority of musicians struggle with depression or anxiety at some point in their lives. Singer Mischa MacPherson looks into some of the reasons behind this and speaks to various musicians to hear about the impact on their lives. Speaking openly and honestly, musicians such as Corrina Hewat and Ross Ainslie offer a powerful and personal insight into the issue."
