report from the festival:
emma and the professor
humorous acoustic guitar and drum duo
from the river redlake in the shropshire marches
2 duos
one british and one german duo
playing as a foursome
dark tales of kings, princesses and lovers
ominous white swans in fields
rhineland mermen
dark horses
irrepressible geordie comedian meets enchanting french songstress
great chemistry
hilarious song titles
such as 'can a blue man sing the whites?'
'jesus at the airport'
the wilsons
five old timers from teeside
an acapella wall of sound that sends a chill down the spine
young trio from border country
instrumental slip jigs and lilting ballads
i fall in lust with the barefoot fiddle player
as she ways erotically from side to side
her fiddle playing isn't bad either
the accordionist is out of this world
i buy the cd in the tent nextdoor
the young uns
young teeside pretenders to the crown of the wilsons
sorrowful sea shanties
acapella wall of sound mark two
lots of laidback conversations with some very nice folk
between sets i set up my music stand
and sit strumming and writing in the sunshine
can't wait for towersey over bank holiday...
