A bit of fun using a print from an old book, and photo editing Ipad tools here.

Lapwing are a musical duo of two young school teachers from Glasgow. This year they decided to put together a Christmas song of hope in these uncertain times.
With no previous experience of the music business, they funded the project themselves and imagined it would be just for family and friends. It was filmed by them in Glasgow at 4.30am!
Much to their amazement it has gone viral, has been played on BBC Radio One, and now rates in the top 50 of iTunes 2020 Christmas songs.
Go for it, boys, you are doing so well. Bravo.

Wonderful news Dave - I don't keep up with music so much since Top of the Pops stopped on TV - but I did listen to Lapwing's song and of course see Glasgow with Christmas Lights.
The song is very easy to listen too and I wish the boys every success with it and any future songs.
