Does music have the power to heal?
Kevin O’Neil is a pretty singular guy. in 2015, he was diagnosed with a form of sarcoma. Now, I know we say that sarcoma is a lesser-known cancer, but Kevin had a form that affects only about 15 people globally.
Kevin had a massive malignant tumour on the wall of the right side of his chest removed. The surgery was no joke. His right rib cage and a large part of his right shoulder blade had to be removed and then his chest rebuilt. He’s in massive pain and takes a cocktail of drugs to keep going.
Why on earth is he organising a progressive music festival? In Dunfermline? In March? In the rain? And even though he builds it, will people come?
