I originally met Maria Kroon after she accompanied Robert James Selby at a gig in 2015. She wasn't well lit on her set so I was keen to collaborate with her on something else. We filmed Brush The Summer By in Bushey, Hertfordshire. She braved a cold and very windy day in November until her fingers could no longer hold the strings. I think her composition perfectly captures the loss and longing of Emily Dickinson's poem
