The Ballad of Ephraim Flint is an adventure told through a scintillating mix of storytelling and music devised by writer and balladeer Cathy Lesurf (former docu-drama silver medal winner at The Radio Festival of New York; lead singer/writer with Fairport Convention and Albion Band). Inspired by the African sailors who fought with Nelson at Trafalgar, Ephraim is a hero who defies expectation. In the aftermath of his war on the 'fighting' Temeraire, Flint sails to England on a quest to find his son, and discovers a peace-time England as perilous as the guns of Trafalgar. His adventures are brought to life by new band Wolfscote: the powerful singing partnership of Lesurf and Isobel Morris (Bruise), and the distinctive guitar styles of Jim Kimberley and Gary Southwell (Curt Glance) draw on a rich seam of traditional music to create a beautiful soundscape, with harp, ukelele, concertina, and a guest choir. Narration is by TV and Theatre virtuoso, Maxine Finch (Coronation Street, Holby City, Waterloo Road).
