Sun shining!? Leaving Nettlebed to get to Goring to start one of the bigger days of the week. Brain a bit scrambled from a tense first night for me – 7 new songs and a band coming together live for the first time . Rowan’s voice and Benji’s presence added that extra dimension that a first night needed, and with everyone having walked (including a good part of the audience) there was a real sense of achievement at the end of a wet, muddy but enjoyable first day. Benji’s rendition of Jimi Hendrix ‘s Voodoo Chile on banjo will live in the memory, and Rowan’s solo acapella “Miners Lullaby” was one of those magic moments.
Nettlebed Gig Monday night – Brilliant start! Enjoyed every note!
