A song that has particular resonance just now, You’ve Got a Friend is sung by Traquair Choir – a community choir that, since its formation in 2014, has welcomed anyone of any age, ability, or experience who would like to sing and enjoy performing. As Julie Harvey, the choir’s musical director, says in her introduction, “The Eastgate has been so helpful in supporting our singing and musical journey together, providing performance opportunities and space. For some of our singers it has been their first experience of being both backstage and onstage.” This version of the Carole King classic is taken from Traquair Choir’s debut album, Follow the Heron, released in 2019.
