Angelina and Johnny Grimshaw

After moving to the Isle of Wight (with the wrong black bags!), Angelina and her father Johnny quickly established themselves on the Island’s music scene.

Johnny talks about his time as a poet, songwriter, and his more recent painting exhibitions.

Angelina discusses the importance of collaboration in music, and where she finds her inspiration.
