"As a song poet there are few in the world today to match him"
Green Man Review, USA
Bridge & Bauble
In 2012, Gary was asked to contribute a song to Bridge & Bauble, a charity CD project on behalf of The Berwick Youth Project, featuring a collection of songs for Christmas 2012.
In a couple of days Gary wrote and recorded 'Last Christmas at Lennel House'and donated it to the CD. The song was inspired by the few months Gary spent working as Activities Coordinator at Lennel House Care Home, near Coldstream, in the Scottish Borders, during a stop-gap period, shortly after moving there in September 2007, and is based directly on Gary's own experiences and observations during his time there.
