Peter Fergus McClelland, The Turn of the Tide: Songs of the Sea, Coast, Fishing, Rivers, Lovers & Banishment. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

The river plays such an important part in our lives that the only surprise is that perhaps we don’t venerate it in song even more than we do. No matter where you live, what county, what city or town, there is a river nearby that has had tales, songs and lyrical beauty bestowed upon it at some time or another. It doesn’t need to be the Thames, the musically enamoured Mersey, the mighty Clyde, the Tyne, the industrious Weir or the Tamar, what matters is that river plays such a role that the musician will find time to give it a moment of life, to capture it forever.
