Caught by the River

Port Eliot – some musical highlights

11th July 2016

As we creep closer to our seventh year down by the Port Eliot estuary, we thought we’d point you in the direction of a couple of things we’re particularly excited about.

Taking to our stage on Thursday evening are July Skies, inspired, amongst other things, by ‘Orford Ness, lost youth, Henry Moore, pylons across fields, abandoned airfields, Avebury, endless childhood summers, forgotten England, the romance of the heavens well after closing time, Super8, countryside, mornings in May, ruins, faded innocence…’ Their 2008 album The Weather Clock was on vinyl for the first time ever on our audio imprint Rivertones earlier this year.

Sat midway between the swamp and the tropics, Black Peaches is the new project of Rob Smoughton, a long-time member of Hot Chip and Scritti Politti. The Peaches will be helping to bring the weekend to a close on Sunday night.

You can find our full lineup here. Other stage info and tickets are available here, via the Port Eliot website.
