Just got back from Bath Fringe. Mental weekend. Three festivals in a Row and no sleep. Small World Festival was awesome!!! Proper Muddy but was a great gig as always, everyone dancing and having it large :) Elderflower Fields festival, the Sun came out, I played at Midnight and was proper knackered having been partying from the gig the night before and then having to mission from festi to festi, but met some really awesome people and I hope to meet them again. Then Bath fringe today, I was on just before Georgey Fame, who said he liked my stuff which is always good to hear. Right, I'm off to a party now at my old house before it gets knocked down. In need of a drink By the way, this Saturday I am playing at the Abbot Cook in Reading. Free Entry, starts at half eight. See you there if your in town!
Well I played Wood Festival at Braziers park on the Saturday night on the Tree Stage and it was fantastic. Great audience, great sound, good stage :) Thanks to everyone who came to watch.
It was the first festival of the season for me, plenty more to come!
So the Sun was out all day, an unheard of thing for a festival I know and there was a big bonfire in the night. It was good to sit around it after my set and listen to everyone singing drunken songs and playing strange games that I am sure the rules were explained to me but still I couldn't pass on the knowledge of it.
Other acts that played were Megan Henwood, a beautiful folk singer song writer, La Mort Subite with their Gypsy styled upbeat grooves, Jack Cade playing his Jonny Cash styled sounds, there was another band I think they were called Syd Arthur that were awesome too.
