Author of Common Ground, Rob Cowen has a mesmerizing way with words. He offers a new way of writing and reading about nature and our experiences within it, in a layered, intimate and startling portrait of a single piece of common ground. A microcosm of our world at large: beautiful, connected, terrifying, growing closer to the edge every day.

'Sensitive, thoughtful and poetic... leading us into a whole new way of looking at the world' Michael Palin

Inspired by the awesome natural spectacle of murmuration, the swooping acrobatic phenomenon of starlings, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr's album Murmurs was released on Topic Records in 2015. Each an accomplished soloist in their own right, they come together, in a symbiotic connection, to present traditional and new music, performed with virtuosity, joy and love of innovation.
