The Recipient of the 2018 ALMF Scholarship - Deborah Helen Wright.
After much deliberation the Board of the ALMF was pleased to announce Deborah Helen Wright as the Recipient of the 2018 ALMF Scholarship. Deb received $3000, a day's recording with Brian Baker at The Bakery, assistance from Board Members and other local community minded musicians and a lovely trophy. She and the other shortlisted applicants were also gifted with attendance at the Pat Pattison Songwriting Masterclass held in January 2019. The Scholarship was announced at the end of year ALMF Concert held at The Skylark Room in Upwey in November 2018. The 2017 Scholarship Recipient, Charlie Bedford was on hand to deliver a round up of his career highlights for the year and how the Scholarship has helped him achieve some of his goals. We wish Deb all the best and hope that the 2018 Scholarship really gives a "Legg" up on her career!
