GUEST,Noreen Shrewsbury Festival 2007 - what's on? (120* d) RE: Shrewsbury Festival 2007 - what's on? 06 Sep 07

We were amongst the droves that left the Acoustic Strawbs set, but not because of the sound level.

Rather we were hoping to hear some of their early folk/rock stuff (which I presume is why they were booked) but they played an extended series of their new stuff- which of course is their right, but it may mean they are not booked again if the increasing numbers leaving after every new song is anything to go by.

The same is likely to be true of Paul Brady from what I have heard. I would have loved to see him do his early traditional stuff, particularly Arthur McBride, but I'm not so keen on his more recent stuff.

That's ageing folkies for you, Alan!

I didn't notice the sound in any of the venues being over-loud, by the way, and I do notice such things. (Show of Hands were wonderful!)
