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 set out to try to get some kind of live music ‘fix’ every week that year, be it watching a band or playing in mine. Then I was going to blog about it. It’s 2018 now, and I did it! The blog continues, with posts on the live music scene in Hampshire, my photographic exploits, and randomness…

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.
