Estuary, Seán Street's sequence of poems about rivers, harbours and tides was first set in musical form by Neil Campbell with vocals by Perri Alleyne-Hughes, and premiered at the Writing on the Wall Festival, Liverpool, in May 2015. Now, a CD studio recording is to be issued, and launched with a dance interpretation by Rachel Sweeney with immersive surround sound at the Capstone Theatre, Liverpool, on May 18. As before, Writing on the Wall will be hosting the event.

Artist Peter Dover, who is responsible for the visual images that will play a key part of the Capstone performance, has created an evocative video of Seán's best known poem, 'Shipping Forecast, Donegal': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-Igy9Sb1BA&feature=youtu.be
