Singer donates guitars to CedarBridge

An American country singer has donated two acoustic guitars to CedarBridge Academy to help introduce students to music.

Jessica Lynn, who performed at the Bermuda Festival earlier this year, visited the school as part of a student outreach programme.

In an e-mail to CedarBridge head of music Tiffany Fox, Ms Lynn said: “The experience was extremely inspiring and I was touched by the passion for music and the way the teachers were encouraging the students to go for their dreams.”

Ms Lynn later spoke to Steve Pisani, owner of a music store in New York, who agreed to ship the brand new guitars to the school.

David Skinner, executive director of the Bermuda Festival, said: “Jessica was a fantastic addition to the festival and made a huge impact on the festival audiences and the students she met during her workshop at CedarBridge Academy.

“We would like to thank her for this initiative and D'Angelico Guitars for their generosity in donating the instruments.”
