Grant keeps strumming

A MUSICIAN from the region has been helping to keep spirits up during lockdown.

Grant Dinwoodie, who is from Lockerbie but now lives in Dumfries, has carried on writing and performing through the pandemic, moving his appearances online and taking requests.

He wrote a ‘fun song’ for his GP cousin, who wanted something to help keep his colleagues smiling.

Grant also penned another tune, ‘Bed of Starlings’, which he dedicated to anyone struggling during the peak of the pandemic. And this week he released a collaboration with Claire Hastings of ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’, which was well received on social media.

Meanwhile, Grant also welcomed a new baby daughter last month, his second child with wife Beth.
