Happy HUMP Day, Everyone! Hope you’ve been enjoying Sheku week.
FML – Young Musician Of The Year and his Family
Pictured Sheku Kanneh-Mason
Sheku Kanneh-Mason is the 17 year-old winner of BBC Young Musician of the Year. He has six siblings all of whom play instruments to world-class levels. So the piece will ask ‘is this the most talented family in Britain’. Idea is that this they are a very ordinary family, not rich, kids go to comprehensive school, parents have made big sacrifices to pay for music lessons etc.
Family øø Dad is Stuart Mason, Mum is Kadie Kanneh. Kids are Isata 19, Braimah 18, Sheku 17, Konya 15, Jeneba 13, Aminata 10 and the youngest Mariatu is 5 and plays the cello, but has not been part of the family ensemble so far.
