Stories From A World Of Music

Less than a fortnight ago, Route assembled a team of writers to gather stories told at the Musicport World Music festival in Bridlington, a small port on the Yorkshire coast. Ian Clayton and Ian Daley have now assembled those stories into a book. The result is a quirky, moving and very human account of three days at one of Europe’s best loved gatherings for World Music.

There are stories from over one hundred people; the audience, the backstage crew, the caterers, the volunteers and the musicians, including Hugh Masekela, Mary Coughlan, Iain Matthews, Mari Boine and World Music journeyman Andy Kershaw.

Signed edition for early orders.

*Orders for a special first edition are now being taken. Any orders received by 1 December 2011 will receive a numbered and signed edition.

The book is released on 5 December.
