from the shore

The album includes contributions from all the poet members of Shore Poets over the years. Gael Turnbull’s contribution comes from a CD recorded by Peter McCarey in 2003. Sean Belcher and Gavin Jones recorded their contributions locally. All the rest were recorded in May and June 2011 at Mayfield Radio Unit.
