Just back from research trip to Portland…

A & B 

Annie Lovejoy and myself are creating a song based on the idea of a womens’ sea shanty rooted in Portland.  Its an amazing place with strong quarrying and fishing roots.  We just spent a week following our noses, gathering stories and having conversations with Portlanders and those who have made the island their home.

You can follow our progress on our blog : http://soundingstone.wordpress.com/

Special thanks to our hosts, the Portland Sculpture and Quarry Trust

B-Side Festival – “explore the flip side of the sea side”
