A dear old friend Madigan Shive came to stay while doing some gigs in the U.K. and Ella Gibbs crewed her womanfully up and down the canal between Broadway Market and Victoria park, while Bonfire Madigan sang to the delight and amazement of canal passersby..

Madigan Shive aka Bonfire Madigan from Seattle WA, USA, living in Tijuana, Mexico, took time off her European tour to grace the East London canalways with her ethereal Cello playing and singing (and awesome use of loops)

We decided to create a character in her honour, an Angel of time and history

Her music will weave throughout I am not a Village (and maybe she'll even come back again soon!) XX
