The great thing about playing the piano accordion is you can have music wherever you go… even at the London Marathon.

Sheffield professional accordionist, composer and music educator Luke Carver Goss is to take part in the world famous run on April 13 on behalf of South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord.

Luke, aged 47, from Meersbrook, is one of the team of professional musicians who make regular visits to care homes and day centres throughout the region, providing interactive musical experiences for people living with dementia.

And, as a keen jogger, he was delighted to be selected to represent the organisation and have the chance to boost their funds – although he’s yet to make a final decision on whether he’ll be pounding the streets with his accordion on!

“This will be the first time I have run a race like the marathon and it is hard work training,” Luke admitted.
