Well, that's done it. Looks like I'm hooked on festivals now. I just had a hugely fantastic time. So much so, that I'm still buzzing. And I'm still so full of it that I've diarised it here
If I might be so bold as to quote a friend's e-mail which arrived seconds ago...
"what a great weekend - wish I could have got there earlier in the day.
George [his son] really enjoyed it, much more than I thought he would. He thought Kate Rusby "amazing! - and quite a good looker, too!" and is also now a firm fan of yours. As we walked back to the tent we tried to recall Kate's songs but the best we could manage was "Hometown" which always degenerated into "Remember you're a Womble" when we got to the chorus. Mind you on Sunday all we could hear at home was George singing "I got banana's, watermelon, peaches by the pound etc." [the long, complicated chorus to my opening song]
Sat by the speakers, we couldn't hear anything of the crowd singing, but the noise at the end of "Tear stained letter" was tremendous - well done.
Anyway it's in the diary for next year but I think I'll make a weekend of it."
