Caught by the River

Hook, Line & Singer (ouch!)

10th October 2011

Cerys Matthews post-Catatonia career is a marvellous thing. Solo records that mix the Welsh language with country music, a radio show that effortlessly traverses the entire globe (music wise) without seeming like it’s box ticking and – best of all – a love of angling in all its forms. On Wednesday 12th at 11am, Radio 4 broadcasts Hook, Line and Singer, a documentary about Cerys’ fishing addiction. On fishing on the Usk, she says “I like the stillness. The sinking into the tiniest piece of universe.” Sounds perfect to us.

Now on the iplayer.
