It's no 'Rumour' that B Sharp had two VIPs visiting in one week. On the first Thursday the legendary Mick Fleetwood from Fleetwood Mac came in to watch our BoomBox music project at The Hub . Mick stayed a while and chatted to us about the value of music. He said "he wished there had been something like B Sharp around when he was young".
Then, 7 days later, still buzzing from Mick's visit, we spent the following Thursday, all day, with @MattGriffiths CEO @Youth Music. A great week for #musicalinspiration #excitement #progression and #confirmation
