On Saturday 22nd September 2012 I
played spoke at my first festival. The Green Soul Area at The Spirit of Folk Festival 2012 to be exact. And though Peter Donegan and The Crickets does have a certain ring to it, it was not I’m happy to note with a guitar and a back up band that I went there.
I was but of course speaking about gardens.
The Thank You Department:
To the artist liaison’s Giuliana and Diane who made my gigging there so much nicer; To Ruth, a random member of the audience who read so eloquently my back up quotes with absolute perfect timing; To you who came along, sat, listened, laughed and chatted – it was a real genuine honour. Last but by no means least to The Spirit of Folk 2012 Festival team for booking me, the getting [and also keeping] me there and for being so very wonderful.
Thank you all so very very much, with a big red cherry on the top.
