A Musical Weekend

Seth Lakeman and his band are playing at Chagstock tonight (a music festival held in a cow pasture in the hills just outside our village), along with a bunch of other good folks, including the Oyster Band, whom I haven't seen live in years. This is my version of heaven. Rainy, muddy Dartmoor heaven, but heaven nonetheless.

The Bad Shepherds headlined last night, and were lots of fun (classic punk anthems played on folk instruments), but the highpoint of the evening for me was a jazz/folk duo from Bournemouth who play under the name Tinderbox. (Note to self: Pick up their new CD.)

Tomorrow, Howard's band, Nosey Crows, plays at Moreton Music Day, as does Susie Yorke's a capella group, The Wild Violets. Perhaps we'll see some of you local folks there?
