The Rhinestone Cowboy Sessions are a series of live recorded sessions with surprise music artists and Past Times Community Choir, a choir supporting people living with dementia, their families, friends and communities in Co. Kildare.
Inspired by Glen Campbell’s monumental contribution to music, Past Times are particularly in awe of his later years. His creative output and recordings after his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s disease is hugely inspirational for anyone journeying that same road but also fascinating to musicians as an example of late-bloom ingenuity.
As part of The Rhinestone Cowboy Sessions, Past Times are collaborating with a host of Irish artists on their own compositions and on songs from Glen’s back catalogue. Here, Charlie McGettigan and the choir perform ‘Try A Little Kindness’. The project will culminate in a grand finale performance in May 2020.
The Rhinestone Cowboy Sessions arts project is currently funded by Kildare County Council, Creative Ireland,The Arts Council and Riverbank Arts Centre. Past Times Community Choir is funded by Kildare County Council and supported by the HSE and McAuley Place.
