    This Finnish 'melancomedy' - part melancholic love story, part deliciously deadpan comedy - is a clever adaptation of the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix award-winning film by Aki Kaurismaki, one of Finland's greatest modern storytellers. An anonymous man is set upon by thugs in a Helsinki park. Left with amnesia, he is taken in by an eccentric homeless community living in genteel contentment in abandoned shipping containers on the shoreline. Beginning an accidental romance with a nice Salvation Army lass, he is freed to start putting life back together again. But the past doesn't leave him alone for long... A compassionate, heart-warming tale played against a cracking live soundtrack, this is impassive, impressive stuff, laced with social insight and gentle, quirky humour.

In this very special 'spoken word and music' celebration, Ashley draws from his 1967 diary to vividly paint the group's formation and the late sixties music scene and is joined on reworkings of songs from his Fairport career by the impressive singer/guitarist Becky Mills: folk-rock history spooling before your very eyes and ears.
