Hey, what a day – the rain in the early stages couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm, and the sun came out towards the late afternoon. Great crowds. Probably the best headliner performance I’ve seen there – The Pretty Things. Dead tight, cool looks and great tunes – felt like a packed club even though it was outside in the market square. Special mention also to The Tom Atkinson Band. Couldn’t get to see anything else!
I was knocked out by the reaction to my solo set in The Quays. Packed (as all venues are at this fest) and full of people really enjoying themselves. Great to see so many friends and two guest harp players! You all made me very happy so thanks loads folks.
Thanks to Mike Prendagast and the Darlo r+b club crew for putting this on every year. More power to your elbow! Thanks to The Quays for having me. Great bar and such nice folk running it.
