What a contrast! Taking a Ramblers show onto a big stage in front of 2,000 people after tiny packed pub gigs was both startling and rewarding. So proud of all the musicians and Rowan who have been with me and especially Alan Prosser coming in to play bass for us, to boost the sound. Big thanks to Steve and Phil from Show of Hands for including us in their evening. The three-part harmony version of “Here’s Adieu Sweet Lovely Nancy” from our shared West Country past will live with me for a long time. So many memories of a beautiful and inspiring walk with so many interesting and genuinely likeable people. It built a bond that was very difficult to break last night. Tears flowed – and so they should. And now the big one: Oysterband close the new Village Pump festival, as so many times before. Bring it on.
