Photographer and writer Len Grant was originally commissioned by Forever Manchester to set up Another Music.

As well as writing stories himself he set up blogging workshops and encouraged local people to get involved.

Thanks to Barbara Shaw, Anthony Bradley, Stephen Chandler, Jane Bolton, Jake Lindley, Alan Hampson and Tricia Beddow who have all contributed to Another Music so far.

Now the blog is being edited by Tricia Beddow who has lived in the area most of her life. If you have a story in mind or would like to write something yourself, get in touch with Tricia by email.
