Just got back from a great weekend at the first ever Maypole beer and music festival at Thurloxton.

So a big thanks to James and Jo for sorting that one out and making us so very welcome, and to Benni Jamin and Jamie for providing their usual high standard of sound & light for us (and the rest of the bands too!) .  But you guys in the crowd were the best!! Thank you especially!!  We love it when people are up for a party.

The standard of music was also really good, some cracking bands and musicians there.  I particularly enjoyed The Man from F.U.N.K.L.E, Groove-a-licious, Hannah Partridge (who also did a song with us on Saturday night), Junk Star Kids and The Fos Brothers.  Thats not to diss the other acts who were on, I didn’t see a duff show all weekend.

AND IT DIDN’T RAIN even though there were storms just up the road in Exeter and a mighty fine time was had by all although there may be some cider commandos who can’t remember too much.

So that’s a big thumbs up from us, long live the Maypole beer and music festival!
