We had great fun playing at Ely on Sunday. The weather was again
fantastic… we spent much of the day alternating between lounging in
the sun and the shade, and in the marquees. Another chance to see
Ezio; Lucy Ward was tremendous; a great set from Other Roads, and
James Morgan was another local highlight.
We played at the start of the evening in Marquee 2 to one of the most
receptive audiences we’ve ever had. The sound crew made sure we had
the best possible sound quality on stage, which makes a huge
difference to how much we enjoy ourselves. Our set consisted of:
Residential Area, Stalker Song, Victory Wine, Speechless, Come and Get
It, Mind the Snake, From the Start, Uh-oh, Fish to fry, New Year’s
Resolution, Done with you, and Not your paint. Thanks to everyone that
listened, finger-clicked, clapped and waltzed along – and those that
went and bought our CD afterwards 🙂
After the adrenaline had worn off we ended the evening watching Seth
Lakeman in Marquee 1, who did a fantastic job closing the festival.
We’ve all seen him play a couple of times before, but this was far and
away the best performance we’d seen from him and his band.
All in all, we had an amazing weekend. Hoping to book some more
festivals for next year…
