Morning All,

Wanted to share this brilliant interview with BBC Entertainment team filmed at Amy’s Yard and talking about the work undertaken at the Amy Winehouse Foundation with young people.

Amy was again nominated in the best solo female category at BRITs2016 last night, a prize she won back in 2007 As we and the music industry remember her many talents and warmth – this BBC film celebrates the ongoing programme set up in her name and honour.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation and ‘Amy’s Yard’ programme provides cohorts of musicians and students through a 12 week course run within the foundations facilities in North London and involving Amy’s own studio space. The Amy’s Yard programme is run in combination with Island Records, our family and industry recognised professionals alike and is a brilliant initiative going from strength to strength.

Watch the short film now over on the BBC Site:

Amy Winehouse Foundation x Sound Connections & Wired4Music Steering Group

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Hi All,

Wanted to share some recent work and give thanks to Sound Connections and Wired4Music for facilitating such a great young people’s steering group for us.

It was so great to get our previous ‪#‎AmysYard‬ graduates back together again, and to hear all of their fantastic ideas about how the programme can grown and develop even further. There was a lot of LOVE in the room!

Thanks also to our friends and partners at The Roundhouse for letting us use their lovely space in the building.
