Field Music ‘Music for Drifters’ is a recording of a newly-composed, cinematic score for John Grierson's landmark 1929 film "Drifters" on the UK's herring fishing industry, widely regarded as the first British narrative documentary. It comes on silver vinyl and gatefold metallic silver board (with download code) and was originally released exclusively on Record Store Day 2015. It’s now available to buy from our shop so you don’t need to do get involved in any ebay shenanigans.
The composition was originally commissioned for a live performance and screening of "Drifters" at 2013's Berwick Film Festival and we (including original keyboardist Andrew Moore) will be performing the score again at screenings of the film in May and June as follows:
