Pleasant songs and great harmonies, but zero stage presence (IMHO). Didnít really engage me.

Seen 'em before, loved 'em. Take the point about the stage presence though, and that's a big old crowd to reach.

I've had their album a couple of years and enjoyed it.  I saw them last year at Towersey and was disappointed because they seemed to be trying too hard.  This year I felt they were more relaxed and did a lot better (though they still need to work on the stage patter).  Maybe it helped that I was at the front, and further back it didn't work so well?

Pleasant enough but nothing to grab my attention. Soon it became just background music as I reverted to reading the programme and chatting to neighbours instead of listening to the music. Shame

Shows how we're all different.  These were my find of the festival.  Beautiful familial harmonies,  enticingly ethereal but not too hippy dippy, overall a delight to the ears (and, if I can say without causing offence, the eyes. What old codger wouldn't be charmed by three beautiful young ladies going oo-oo-ooo a lot?🥴 )

It is though. I've seen them before, and always the crowds are numbered in the hundreds, in small areas. Cropredy is a huge field, and a big crowd, and if you aren't a naturally ebullient performer I would imagine it is difficult. I could be wrong but expect that might be the biggest crowd they have played to. Has to be one of the biggest.

No, you're right it isn't, it's a medium sized one I suppose. But a lot of the bands who play Cropredy don't play big stages anywhere else so it must seem huge to them.

hopefully it will be an experience for them to build on and get bigger

One of my highlights of the festival, but Iím a sucker for harmony singing. I liked Tors for the same reason, but I think, for me, the girls had better songs. Great sound, really liked Meghannís drum set up. Thought they had a charming understated stage presence. I see theyíre playing in Leeds later this year so might bob along.

They were ok.  I wouldn't go out of my way to see them again. They sent me to sleep!

Pleasant, and enjoyable, but I wouldn't go and see them in concert.
