PAUL & SHAZ
we went to see them at Chalice Well...fantastic
we booked them for our Party In The Paddock August 20th near midsomer norton
I listened afresh with new ears, and loved every second of it... now a fan - one of a growing number i suspect. Ace.
Ab Fab. Never saw them before - just heard 1 track before, in a shop. Bought their 2 albums at the Avalon stage. A great highlight of the fest for me.
I saw the performance on Sunday in the Avalon Tent, and the band played better than ever - but the sound set up was awful, with no prominence given to solo instruments when it was needed, and (perhaps appropriately?) a generally muddy feel. The new members, on hurdy gurdy / bagpipes / sax and bass, have obviously settled in and now really gel with the rest of the band. They all enjoyed themselves and it showed in the music. A nice mix of lively dance tunes and haunting songs, and all well received by the audience. But what was that dancer doing on stage?
I saw them play on the Croissant Neuf stage on Saturday night too, and they absolutely *Rocked*!!
Nice work :o)
