Tales of the Riverbank

Sources of life and timeless inspirations to song-makers, rivers run through many of our well-loved and best-known landscapes.  Their quiet country banks and neglected docksides are now often the focus of rural rediscovery, urban regeneration, and seaside redevelopment.  Hear songs about grand city quays and unspoiled country streams.
