I can't figure out how to see Vic Smith's photos (I don't and won't have a Facebook account). Is it possible?
Apparently not, though the access to this album is set to "Public".
imgur, Photobucket, twitpic, Picasa, Flickr...
It was nice to see people making more of a sartorial effort this year. Hawaiian shirts were the big thing for gentlemen, and Valmai's amazing techni-any-colour-so-long-as-it's-brown dreamcoat of bar towels needs to feature on a magazine cover.
Mudcatters it was good to put a face to: Commander Crabbe, Nick Blair, Mo the caller.
Carol Anderson's Scottish sessions really took off - lots of players who know the idiom and could give it welly.
I didn't get to concerts (being mostly holed up in the Elsinore) but the one group of younger performers that really made an impression were the Newcastle Kingsmen - I think mostly a new lineup? Sheesh they're slick.
The first I knew about the Guggenmusik group was while waiting for the train home - were they around earlier? They need to visit the Eurosession if they come back. I've never heard that stuff before.
Did Steve Mansfield not make it?
