Songwriter and musician Sadhbh O’Sullivan was awarded an artsandhealth.ie artist bursary in 2021 to reflect on her approach to a holistic music and health practice.

THE SINGING BODY includes valuable insights into facilitation techniques, the application of breath-led approaches to participatory music-making and the development of a trauma-informed and grief-sensitive practice. Seen through the lens of the Covid pandemic, Sadhbh’s enquiry also addresses the shifts in practice required to engage the older population in music and song-writing experiences.
