It’s been nearly one year since we last featured a page from the Skeleton Park Community Songbook. In case you need a refresher, the Skeleton Park Community Songbook is an arts project slash fundraising initiative, which has amassed over a dozen musical collaborations pairing local professional musicians with various community organizations. Today, we’re excited to share a recently released addition to this project, which pairs Megan Hamilton and the Kingston Community Midwives together to sing When You Were Born. Set below the shady trees in Skeleton Park, this lovely song makes me hopeful for a few more late additions to the Songbook in the coming months. Hit play below and be sure to add this to your playlist for the May long weekend.
