GOOD MU­SIC AWARD

Evergreen - - Summer 2016 -

One

of Ev­er­green’s big­gest fans is the de­light­ful Rose­mary Squires who has been singing her heart out for more than seven decades. A true Brit, she has been a cham­pion of every­thing taste­ful and good in mu­sic and her ca­reer has lasted longer then any­one.

Ini­tially singing as a teenager for troops near Sal­is­bury dur­ing the war, she be­came a pro­fes­sional with, amongst oth­ers, the bands of Ger­aldo, Eric Win­stone and the BBC Big Band. She has sold mil­lions of records and was the voice of nu­mer­ous tele­vi­sion ad­verts, in­clud­ing “Fry’s Turk­ish De­light” and “Mild Green Fairy Liq­uid”. In 2012 she re­ceived the Bri­tish Mu­sic Hall So­ci­ety’s Life­time Achieve­ment Award and we are de­lighted to give her yet an­other ac­co­lade.

Rose, we take the great­est of plea­sure in pre­sent­ing you with our Good Mu­sic Award. As the Queen Mother once said to you: “Carry on singing!”

It is an ac­tion song for chil­dren so, if you have ac­cess to the in­ter­net, why not look it up and try it out with the younger mem­bers of your fam­ily?
