My, extremely  well done Addie. Maybe I'll get there next year.


Me too, but just now if I can make it to cropredy and BDS it will be a win.  Bearded and Bosti  will be a bonus!

Just a heads up for anybody in the area, Bostin Days 2 is being held at the Robin2 near Wolverhampton next month, October 14-15th. We've spread it over two days this year but still have lots of acts to pack in.

Friday night we have The Star Botherers, a house band of various artists and guest singers entitled The Black Tar Rivers Boozy Big Band with a set of Levellers covers finishing with Ferocious Dog 3 piece acoustic.

Saturday we have Stevie Simpson, Emma & The Professor, Funke & The Two Tone Baby, Brad Dear, The Sweetchunks Band, Shanks Pony, Son Primo, Brian Stone, The Bar Steward Sons Of Val Doonican, Davey Malone & The Longtails, Folk The System, Mealor Hughes, Parson's Lot, Bleeding Hearts, Leatherat, Doozer McDooze, Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs, The Fanzines, Gaz Brookfield, The Folkestra, The Leylines.

£30 for the weekend, tickets available from the robin2 website or www.bostindays.co.uk All profits are being split between the nation's Air Ambulances.

Be great to see you there, cheers Addie

I can't think there's much demand for a caravan/camp site anywhere close to Bilston. Ugh.

Thanks Tasha, just got to see if I can get the time off work, which isn't looking very hopeful at the moment. Cry

I'm proud and honoured to announce Bostiiin Festival, the album!

All of our bostin acts (including Cropredy first timers The Bar Steward Sons Of Val Doonican) this year have kindly donated a track to bring you this amazing compilation of the highest quality.

You can download the album at https://bostindays.bandcamp.com/album/bostiiin-the-be-kind-help-mind-album

You can PAY WHAT YOU WANT for this album. Essentially, it could be free, but EVERY PENNY of donations goes directly to the MIND charity (For Better Mental Health).

Thanks for reading, see you in August!
