Caught by the River

Port By The River, Monday Morning

27th July 2009


So yesterday sealed the deal. It featured readings by Kurt Jackson, the mighty Andrews of Arcadia, Hannah Hamilton, Kathryn Williams and Gavin Pretor-Pinney – all ace – alongside Chris Watson‘s Nature Disco (90 minutes of field recordings from Africa, Iceland and the Port Eliot estate – utterly mindblowing) and a tent raising acoustic gig by King Creosote. It was bloody marvellous. The set closer, a cover of “Come On Eileen”, will stay with a lot of people for a very long time. Gutted to leave but Lord willing (Lord St Germans that is) we’ll see you here next year. Massive thanks to everyone involved, we couldn’t have done it etc etc…
