Had an amazing time on the island of Jura with Clutch, who was there writing a song to raise money for the ferry, which is under threat from funding cuts.
The song’s nearly done (just some vocals, real strings and maybe a bit of guitar to go) – and you can hear the rough mix of where it’s at in the video above. The finished song will be released online in the not too distant future.
My job was to make the website, and help out as best as I can – and I’m using the project as the basis for a case study in a chapter of a book I’m writing – and as a piece of research, it’ll be an academic conference paper at the very least, if not a journal article.
But what an incredible place to spend a week – and of course, we had some very fine whisky while we were there.
