About this blog… Well… my name is Colin, I live in Hampshire (UK) and play in a folk band, Shantyhead.
In January 2017 I had an idea… I’m going to try to get some kind of live music ‘fix’ every week this year, be it watching a band or playing in mine. Then I’m going to blog about it.

There’s a good local music scene in my area, so I’ve got plenty of material to work with, so here goes!

Why Riverflow? Well, it’s the title of one of my favourite songs by one of my favourites bands, The Levellers. Each verse ends with the line “and on the river flows” – a bit like my quest for live music every week… Here’s a video of them playing it on the Isle of Wight in 2013.
