Caught by the River x AERIAL Festival – exclusive film details…

After the cancellation of the physical Aerial Festival — due to have taken place in March, an online version of the event will go live from 26th September. We are pleased to announce a new unseen short film from the Boundary Songs project, ‘The Drift’ by David Banning – will be made available as an exclusive by the online arts/nature/culture clash site: Caught by the River. The film concerns the reverberations of an old bobbin mill at Caldbeck, and the limestone outcrop of Humphrey Head, near Allithwaite in Cumbria. It is set to music from Richard Skelton’s 2019 album Border Ballads.

A mix of spoken word, music, and nature sounds inspired by the Lakes, other artists and performers on the Caught by the River lineup include: BBC 6Music’s Stuart Maconie, author Roy Wilkinson, field recording artist Chris Watson, music from Jack Cooper (Modern Nature), and a reading from author Helen Mort.

All pieces go live on the Aerial website next Saturday and will be free to access…
