Three Ladner brothers are getting the word out about self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic with their song Stay Home.
Toby Kofoed, 13 and his brothers Finn, 10, and Rory, 7, wrote and performed the song Monday. The video has over 500 views on YouTube.
“We wrote this song as a friendly message to help stop the spread of Covid-19,” it states in the video’s description. “Please stay home, everyone!”
The brothers are students of Garth Preston at the Delta Community Music School, notes their mom Tracey in an email to the Optimist.
Toby plays the banjo at the Ladner Village Market, Finn takes voice lessons from Ladner musician Schara Chalmers, and is playing the part of the Dodo Bird in the upcoming (but now postponed) Alice in Wonderland production by Studio West, while Rory plays the banjolele as well as the piano.
“The video has been making its rounds and is being shared more and more, so it’s great that the message is getting out! We need to slow down the spread of this virus to give our healthcare facilities a chance of being able to help everyone who needs it,” Tracey said in her message to the Optimist.
