Ian Abrahams - Mike Scott and The Waterboys - Strange Boat
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Strange Boat charts the twisting and meandering journey of Mike Scott, describing the literary and spiritual references that inform his songwriting and exploring the multitude of locations and cultures in which The Waterboys have assembled and reflected in their recordings.

From his early forays into the music scene in Scotland at the end of the 1970s, to his creation of a 'Big Music' that peaked with the hit single 'The Whole of the Moon' and onto the Irish adventure which spawned the classic Fisherman's Blues, his constantly restless creativity has led him through a myriad of changes.  With his revolving cast of troubadours at his side, he's created some ofthe most era-defining records of the 1980s, reeled and jigged across the Celtic heartlands, reinvented himself as an electric rocker in New York, and sought-out personal renewal in the spiritual calm of Findhorn's Scottish highland retreat.  Mike Scott's life has been a tale of continual musical exploration with an ever-evolving spirituality.
