lyrics

This week’s installment is a collaboration with Devon poet Chrissy Banks who’s poem “Island Leaving” I have set to music. Chrissy writes the story of her grandmothers and explains in her audio introduction how the pandemic separates her from her youngest son, leaving her, like her grandmother before her, yearning for family members who are an impossible journey away.
