'Beautiful Memories' by Byron Pickett is part of the ‘Shine – Healing songs from the heart and the land’ album. The album is a culmination of Community Arts Network's three-year music workshop program with the Quairading and Kellerberrin communities. Ten local, first time performers worked alongside professional artists and turned their heartfelt personal stories into professionally recorded songs.
Award winning Noongar singer Gina Williams facilitated the workshops alongside acclaimed musicians Guy Ghouse and David Hyams. The trio helped aspiring Aboriginal performers to turn their stories into contemporary songs.
The beautiful collection of original ballads tells tales of love, loss, life, culture and country. Some songs have been more than fifty years in the making.
Video Clips produced through a partnership with Central Institute of Technology and CAN.
