It was a fabulous week. The music was possibly the best in some 20 years of attending. Picking out the highlights from such a wonderful bunch of concerts is difficult but Chris Wood's concert in the Ham was exceptional, almost spiritual. His "One In A Million" brought tears to my eyes, first time that's happened to me at a live gig. The Nic Jones tribute was a glorious celebration of his work and the crowd gave him a standing ovation at the start as he walked on stage. Lots of fabulous performances of Nic's music but Jackie Oates' Annachie Gordon was simply stunning and just edged it for me. Another highlight of Sidmouth is finding new music and I really enjoyed Mary Humpreys and Anahata as a new discovery. Laughed and laughed in the daft folk quiz. Roll on next year.
