Music Saves I
Vancouver Adapted Music Society’s Music Saves Video Project showcases a stellar array of West Coast music scene names.
Produced by Shore 104 FM, it features VAMS members Jim Byrnes, Sylvi MacCormac and Rolf Kempf, joined by The Sojourners, Ndidi Onukwulu, Geoff Hicks, Shaun Verreault, Adaline, Daniel Wesley, Shane Turner and Jets Overhead in an amazing cover of Bob Dylan’s I Shall Be Released.
Jim Byrnes, an original VAMS member and supporter, says the choice of song was “brilliant, because the theme of the song fits so well with the mandate VAMS lives by: music truly sets you free.
“We are all prisoners in some way. We have a physical disability or a mental disability or we’re afraid of something in our lives; but I think this project is an opportunity to show how this music, that we love so much, is a way to set us all free and allows us to be a part of the world that surrounds us.”
