The Sheer Isolation Podcast (15/11/20) – with Fiona Riches

Floating in Bristol’s harbour, The Thekla is one of Bristol’s iconic music venues. On this week’s Sheer Isolation we’re joined by one of her sound engineers.

Fiona Riches tells a familiar story of what she’s been doing this year while the Thekla, and her job, have been put on indefinite hold. She also talks about recent renovation works to the vessel, a new-found love of pottery, and why any sound engineer would want to be in charge of controlling sound in the ship’s metal hull.

Two new, local tracks for you this week. One from Wiltshire based country/pop songwriter, Kirsty Clinch. The other from Poisonous Birds – an electro/rock trio from Bristol.
