Collective Spirit

'Collective Spirit' - The Boat Project by Lone Twin

The Boat Project, by Lone Twin, is a living archive of people's stories and lives, a 30ft seafaring vessel made from donated wooden items. The vessel named Collective Spirit was launched on 7 May and manned by a volunteer crew specially trained for the task she undertook a Maiden Voyage along the South Coast. Also aboard for the duration of the voyage was Thirty Pounds of Bone, the alt-folk art project of Johny Lamb. Travelling as an active member of the crew Johny produced The Ship’s Log - a collection of songs, created on the high seas, documenting each leg of the boat’s maiden voyage. For Collective Spirit's visit to London Thirty Pounds of Bone performs the complete Ships Log and for the gig is joined by special guests Mary Hampton, Marc Beatty from Brakes/Tenderfoot and Alex and Thomas White from Brakes/Electric Soft Parade. An evening of excellent musicianship and extraordinary tales of life aboard a unique boat.
