Raising the Dead

We’ve only played our arrangement of ‘Lord Franklin’ twice in public but on Monday we clearly got something right because two days later this happens.

Franklin 1

Chris has been playing the song solo for a while with no response from the Arctic so obviously Karen’s haunting clarinet part was needed to get things moving.

The Franklin Expedition has had a powerful hold on people’s imagination for the past 170 years and now there’s a rich new seam of material to add to the speculation about what happened to those 129 explorers in a part of the planet which is still mysterious and frightening.
