I'm very excited to finally get to play a concert for Music Mends. It's an amazing organization, run by Andrea Kelly, that pairs musicians with patients. Read below for more information:
A music lover herself, Andrea Kelly personally experienced the healing power of music and also observed its effect on others, especially those ailing or recovering. She set out to find musicians who would bring live music to those on the mend in an Arlington nursing home/rehab center, and there has been an outpouring of interest by local musicians.
In less than two years, over 100 talented local musicians have played mini-concerts for patients, some even performing at bedsides. MusicMends is growing and lifting the spirits of so many in need and always looking for new artists.
