Martyn Joseph’s Pipefest has announced this will be the last festival for the foreseeable future. Cost considerations.

Campfire Festival, Uckfield, East Sussex.
An annual one day affair with around 200 attendees set up by Naomi Bedford and Paul Simmonds.
Music very much centred around The Men They Couldn’t Hang and Naomi and Paul’s Ramshackle Band with full band and solo performances.
Other entertainment included juggling, tightrope walking, fire eating and a man dressed as an ostrich riding a unicycle!
A truly unique little festival with a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.

Wow I can’t beat that, Adam!

But we had a great mini break and saw Anna Massie, then The Old Blind Dogs, in the Under Canvas Festival at Eden Court, Inverness. Anna Massie is from The Black Isle and sings solo with her guitar, mainly her own compositions, but also some well known songs such as ‘I think we’re alone now’ and has great repartee.

The Old Blind Dogs had their fiddler missing, unwell,  but performed some great traditional-influenced numbers with the pipes, drums and guitar.  I realised they have appeared at Cropredy and on investigation found it was in 2003, I didn’t remember this but they would be good on a Thur or Fri afternoon.

We also went to Inverness Highland Games where we discovered a great electronic accordianist called Ruaridh Maclean…aka Rumac…he was absolutely amazing with his own very individual ( hilarious in some cases) take on some well known songs such as ‘Delilah’ and ‘Donald where’s yer troosers?’ He has a very powerful voice and a great personality.

I've just noticed ads on ebay with pre sale orders for more Jethro Tull de luxe re-issues on August 23 for:

Stand Up
A Passion Play
Heavy Horses


I hope that is true. I await hearing it from Burning Shed.


They are certainly on ebay. I think Burning Shed have been dealing with the Bursting Out set, which appears to be sold out. I'm hoping the Shed do a multi buy deal again. There's no mention of them on the official Tull site either. Yet.

Victoria Hall in Settle (North Yorkshire) is always worth checking.  Eddi Reader is on tomorrow night (but sadly sold out), Peatbog faeries on Sunday, Gnoss on Thursday 25th, Genticorum on Friday 26th and Skippinish on Sunday 4th August.  Lots of other good stuff, but notably Le Vent Du Nord are there on Tuesday 20th August, Track Dogs on Thursday 5th September, Steve Tilston on Wednesday 18th September and Fairport on Wednesday 16th October.  


Lots worthy of seeing but I would say Steve Tilston is particulalty worth mentioning. A stalwart of the folk scene for decades and still fresh and relevant today. He did a wonderful evening at the Wychwood club this year, I marked him down to see again.


Yes, Steve is a local lad to me and I've seen him a lot.
