Voor zijn eerste studio-album in tientallen jaren heeft muzikale innovator Thomas Dolby muziek gecomponeerd in de uniek inspirerende omgeving van een gerestaureerde reddingsboot. Hij brengt de première van een fantastische, evocatieve song uit dat album - over een nacht met een legende. Hij wordt ondersteund door de leden van het moderne strijkkwartet Ethel.
