The next instalment in its monthly Social Clubs series take Caught by the River back to The Social for songs, poetry and inspired by the wildlife and landscapes of the British Isles. Caught by the River is the online gathering place for those that treasure wildlife, nature, interesting characters and tremendous music. Singer-songwriter, Brian Briggs, (former frontman of Stornoway) and award-winning Welsh poet, Paul Henry, perform tracks from their new album 'The Glass Aisle', a mesmerising collaboration of songs and poetry set on the Monmouthshire-Brecon canal. Paul's lyrics transport the listener deep into the frozen landscape on the cusp of spring, via Brian's pure tenor, and into the company of poacher-fisherman John Moonlight and Marconi, who conducted his experiments for radio on the canal. 'The Glass Aisle' is also the title of Paul's new poetry collection, published by Seren. Paul and Brian will be supported by Lomond Campbell. A long-time resident of Edinburgh, eager to flee the clamour and turbulence of the city, Campbell upped sticks a couple of years ago, setting up home and studio in a decrepit, asbestos-ridden school house in the shadow of Ben Nevis. His debut record 'Black River Promise' was recorded there deep in the Scottish Highlands and released on Heavenly Recordings in November.
