Croftlands Junior School’s guitar club have been making waves on the local music scene over the last year and their latest song, Heartbeat, was featured on BBC Cumbria on Saturday.

The song, Heartbeat, was recorded using the school’s new digital recording equipment and uploaded to the BBC Introducing website by teacher Simon Cross.

The talented band of seven to eleven-year-olds write and record their own songs as well as performing covers of popular classics.

Now the budding young musicians are keeping their fingers crossed that they will gain UK wide fame by being played on national radio.

Mr Cross, who runs the club, said: “It was brilliant, the kids couldn’t believe it.

“I only uploaded it on Wednesday and in the opening spiel it says it can be up to six months to before anyone even listens to it but it was on the air on Saturday, it was amazing really.

“Hopefully they will pass it on to the national BBC Introduces now.

“The kids were really proud because they are the ones that wrote it.”
