GUEST,Georgia Shanty singing on The Fold soundtrack (10) Shanty singing on The Fold soundtrack 25 Nov 13


I'm writing from The Electric Shadow Company, a film production company. Last year we made our first feature film, called The Fold, which is set in Cornwall. At the heart of The Fold is it's music. We filmed a 30 person choir in Truro Cathedral, a folk band on the beaches at Gunwalloe, and of course we couldn't make a film about Cornwall without shanty singers. The Fold features a beautiful new arrangement of The Farewell Shanty sung by Anthony Gilbert and David Muirhead.

We would like to make the music of The Fold available to a bigger audience so we've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise the money we need to master a soundtrack album.

I've copied the link to the campaign page below. Please take a look, I really hope you'll like what you hear. Any support you can give would be so much appreciated, whether it be sharing the link with anyone you know who enjoys shanties and folk music, spreading the word on Twitter and Facebook, or becoming a backer for the project.

The Fold is being released in cinemas in the spring next year, and you can find out more about it on our website

Thank you so much for your time and I hope you enjoy the music!

Best wishes,
