‘The weekend Millionaires’ is a wonderful film about the lives of the Lightermen who lived and worked on the Thames. Anyone who loves the Thames, will love it for the the stories and film footage of a changing river.
Researching for the film director Matthew Rosenberg found an anonymous poem which he asked me to set to music. After that I wrote a short instrumental piece to capture the sense of freedom kicking back on the boat after some hard physical work.
Enjoy the film!
On the same page Matthew has added a video of the song, and I’ve added the instrumental here too because I quite liked it: https://soundcloud.com/vincent-burke/instrumental-from-the-weekend-millionaires
