Last month I had the great pleasure of playing at the Beautiful Days festival as part of the prize from winning the Acoustic Magazine competition to find the UKs best Singer-Songwriter. No pressure then…
To be honest I’m not too sure about competition in music as one person’s apples are another’s oranges but I was grateful for the opportunity to play at Beautiful Days. There were also some great prizes including a posh microphone (DPA) and an Alvarez guitar (more of that later).
I had an amazing time down in Exeter playing the gig with Fiddes Smith on mandolin and Mark Strains on double bass and I hope to get back to this excellent festival sometime.
Apart from playing, festival highlights for me were Seth Lakeman who was headlining on our stage and played a blinder and also comedy/theatre act “La Navet Bete Napoleon a Defence” who were genius. Festival lowlights were me falling arse over tit in the mud, had to happen to someone.
The pic below is a stage photo of our lovely crowd for the gig, cheers guys
