TUNE in today to watch a live stream from an 18-year-old musician from Broad Chalke which will include some tracks that have never been heard before.

Ned Holland is doing the live stream on Instagram at 6.30pm and is raising money for the Stars Appeal.

He has released three singles - Make Things Happen, The Time Has Come, and Arizona Highways - on music platforms including Spotify.

"I'm really into my music and I've managed to release three singles on music platforms and I wanted to keep my content going but in times like these you are limited," explains Ned. "So I thought a live stream for my small amount of followers would be quite a good idea. To make it better I thought I would put it towards a good cause and try to raise some money for charity.

"Stars Appeal have been really good to my grandmother who has had cancer four times. I thought it would be a nice way to raise a bit of money for them."

An online fundraising page has been set up for donations.

"I've set a target of £250 but it would be awesome to go over that," said Ned, who is the son of historian James Holland.

This will be the first time he has done a live stream although he has performed live concerts before.

"I'm really excited about it. I've been practising quite a lot," he added. "I'm going to do seven songs in the space of half an hour. I'm only going to do one cover and the rest are going to be my own songs. I'm going to do two songs some people may have heard that I have released on platforms and four songs of my own that no-one has heard before, which is quite exciting for people to listen to."

Describing his sound, he said: "My music is quite acoustic but I like to mix it up. Especially during this lockdown I've been playing more of the piano to try and vary it and broaden my ability. I've been listening to a lot of The Beatles who are my biggest inspiration - trying to write songs and take inspiration from that."

The 18-year-old hopes to pursue a career in music in the future.
