A Fish Tale – composed by Alan Barnes & Pat McCarthy.

A commission of new original music reflecting on the rich heritage of our fishing ports, using diverse musicians to create a dynamic suite of music arranged and led by Alan Barnes and interspersed with insightful verse by Josie Moon.

It is a powerful and exciting evening of jazz and poetry completely evocative of any fishing port, and guaranteed to stir the memories of fishing communities. It is a tribute to the contribution made by those in the fishing industry who were instrumental in feeding the nation and protecting it in times of war.

Alan with Pat McCarthy has delivered another of his fantastic themed compositions with an all-star quality octet line up of Alan Barnes, Dean Masser and Gilad Atzmon on saxophones, Neil Yates on trumpet, Dave Green on double bass, Pat McCarthy on guitar, Mark Nightingale on trombone and John Perry on percussion with poet Josie Moon.
