Following the Fleet: Drifters England tour 2017
I will be touring my live vocal score to John Grierson's immense silent documentary, Drifters, between August and September 2017. Last year Shona Thomson from "A Kind of Seeing" produced a successful tour of the east coast of Scotland which also incorporated the wonderful islands of Shetland and Orkney. This year we are working together again and bringing my live show to Leith, Sea Houses, South Shields, Hull, Aldeburgh, and Great Yarmouth. For this years tour, I am also working with the brilliant sound engineer, Alex Fiennes to create a much more immersive sound experience. The events will also be doubled billed with some incredible musicians and collectives including Davno, Dead Rat Orchestra, Harry Meadley, Andy Craig, Hector Gannet and various artists from the Portuguese speaking community of Great Yarmouth.
My thanks for their generous help and support go to A Kind of Seeing, BFI "Britain On Film", Arts Council England, BFI Film Audience Network, Leith Late, Citizen Curator and the National Library of Scotland.
