MusicPlus: Clare Hammond
‘Suddenly this wasn’t just music that was being presented on a pedestal, it was music that had a human story and connection.’
Aside from her work on the concert platform, pianist Clare Hammond is engaging in outreach to schools and prisons and immigration removal centres. She has also written movingly about her experiences of postnatal depression.
She talks to Chris Gunness about managing mental health while sustaining a career, and healing through music-making.
