It's been an incredible year, with our 50th anniversary events taking us all over the island and bringing together friends old and new to celebrate the legacy of story and song that is Breakwater. The last of our major anniversary events was held in August to close out the annual Writers at Woody Point festival, a place Breakwater and its people had a hand in promoting since day one. 

Hosted by Angela Antle and Breakwater's George Murray, this event included readings and talks from founding friend Paul Dean, Winterset Prize-winner Shelly Kawaja, and the incomparable Andy Jones, as well as music from Des Walsh and the original lineup of Tickle Harbour. All this with the recently departed Clyde Rose, Breakwater's founder, in attendance. 

Best of all, we recorded the whole thing and thought it would be a nice treat to post for your listening pleasure over the holidays. 

All the best to you and yours, for the rest of this year and into the new year to come! 

Yours friends at Breakwater Books
