The first ever Pipe & Slippers open air festival was really cool.
OK. That's not strictly accurate ...
It was bloody f-f-freezing.
Which was a shame, cos the line-up was awesome:
Katrina Naomi (fab poet)
Paul Ewer (novelist - sorry - couldn't find link)
Alice Gun (lovely harmonies and weird and wonderful instruments)
Wes White (described accurately as 'uncategorisable' - but v funny)
Maki and Kola (free form jazz dancers that need to be seen to be believed)
Paddy Steel (P&S organiser reading from work in progress)
Jacqueline Walker (reading from Pilgrim State)
Stuart Silver & the Ukelele Orchestra (I expected a wall of sound from massed ranks of teensy string instruments - I saw instead one man with a surreal sense of humour that cracked me up)
Citizen Helene (sweet sounds)
It was an honour to be part of this line-up.
But I couldn't help wishing we had a roaring log fire or three ...
Meanwhile - I have to tell you that I can't be sure that I exist at this point in time.
G's back at work.
FB's back at school.
LG's in the Isle of Wight for 5 days.
And Blogger's playing up and it's been a bugger getting these links to work ...
So reminder me please ... who am I again?
