i’m back!!! what a weekend! thurs; very quiet, but i sat outside my tent “busking” trying to encourage others to join me, no luck, everyone too busy setting up tents rv’s etc, had a couple of pints of the best cider i’ve ever tasted, in the local pub and had an early night!! (a little disapointed but undaunted!) friday morning arrives and peering out of the tent i find i have new neighbours, four pup tents!! housing (as i found out later) a great band, who had travelled on the overnight ferry from Belfast (northern ireland)" the down and out b/grass band" and four more friendly guys you could’nt wish to meet!. so as my folks were irish and i’d visitied ireland on many occassions we had a lot in common, and in no time at all became buddies.
i played with these guys all friday afternoon outside the tents, i sat opposite the guitarist, and followed where i could, they were very understanding of my “modest ability” the weather was glorious and the time just flew by. but holy cow could these boys drink, more than one bottle of whisky between them!!! and they were headlining the the friday night concert!!!.
more instalments to follow.
