Thread Name: Sidmouth- How was it for you?
Subject: RE: Sidmouth- How was it for you?
Got back late yesterday as I went via Cardiff - to see my team at the Millenium Stadium.

Had to be the hottest Sidmouth ever - but was I daunted? No - of course not. I found a lovely spot in the Bedford so I could get the breeze from the windows and from the overhead fans. Nice to see Herga Kitty, Steve Benbows protege and all, and of course the great music. Voice went on monday, but what the hey, still managed to play anyway, and conserved the voice as best possible.

The young man playing the electric piano's name is Clive Lever, and he has so many versions of the 'Wild Rover' he could probably make CD's for the next 5 years and still have some versions left over. I ordered my mudcat t-shirt late, so didn't have it with me to wear, but that has now been rectified. Whichever way I had a fabulous time and look forward to repeating it next year. My next festival is a little local one at the 'Red Lion' Baddlesmere, near Faversham. It's held over the August Bank Holiday weekend if you are interested - great little festival with lots of real ale.
