Tales from the Smugglers' Coast

My alter ego 'Johnner Jack', old fisherman , bleather and teller of stories, has been created for Johnshaven Heritage Hub as part of an augmented reality installation telling tales of the village and the area and bringing them to life on your phone as you walk round the museum or on a walk round the village; stories about the last launch of the Johnshaven lifeboat, the fate of Miltonhaven, the tragic story of the poet George Beattie and many more.

Johnner Jack

Andy as Johnner Jack 

'The Wake' by Andy Shanks and Jim Russell 

A moving comment on the slow demise of the Scottish fishing industry .
