LOCAL music legend Nick Cope has taken up a residency at the Oxford Story Museum.

From now on, you will be able to catch the former Candyskins frontman at his new playground on the second Saturday of every month.

Earlier this month more than 200 people came to the museum for the launch of his third album of children’s songs, Why Is The Sky Blue?

Mr Cope, 48, said: “The new album is aboutOxford Mail: Nick Cope at St Alban’s Church hall in Charles Street, Oxford everything that children are really interested in.

“There is a true story about a dog who eats a bar of soap.”

It follows his first two albums for children, What Colour Is Your T-shirt? and My Socks.
