Have a look at the September issue of Cumbria Life Magazine. Mary Ingham, who interviewed Kerry Darbishire just over a month ago, has written a lovely piece which summarises perfectly what it was that made her mother, Kay Callaghan, such a charismatic person and how it was she came to have an impact on all who knew her at Rosewood in the tiny hamlet at Skelwith Bridge. The article includes a biography of Kerry, who tends to hide her light under a bushel sometimes, so it’s great to see her achievements as a poet and song writer given the recognition she deserves.
Cumbria Life is a great supporter of the arts in Cumbria. I don’t buy the magazine as often as I should. When I do I’m always impressed with the quality of the journalism and range of subject matter. New resolution….. get a subscription to Cumbria Life!
I mustn’t finish this post without paying tribute to Russell Holden who designed the cover for Kay’s Ark. We have already received a number of compliments from people who know Kerry and knew her mother. They agree that it perfectly captures the seemingly idyllic 1950’s when Kay first came to Rosewood with her children. Well done Russell!
