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 and Jake Lindley who contributed to Another Music in the early days, followed since by Alan Hampson, Carole Gaulsden and Tricia Beddow.

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.
