A songwriting project based on Hadrian's Wall, featuring Border and North of England songwriters and poets.
Five highly regarded songwriters - Jez Lowe, Boo Hewerdine, Julie Matthews, Ruth Notman and Rory McLeod - plus two poets well-known to BBC Radio 4 listeners (Kate Fox and Elvis McGonagall) gathered for five days in a farmhouse close to the Roman wall, to write a cycle of songs and poems.
At the end of the week they gave the songs a public performance, which resulted in this live CD.
The songs and poems are contemporary, relevant to today with a hint of history, and deal with the area around Hadrian's Wall as well as the wall itself.
