Wish you were here..
Only a few days ago a friend of ours told David and me about a local one day music festival she was planning to attend. We joined her at Wish you were here last Saturday.
The Portland Arms and Boathouse pub are just across the road from each other and each had set after half hour set lined up. We arrived just before the first band started setting up around three in the afternoon and by the time the last band took the stage at ten thirty our legs were aching and our ears were buzzing. We had an absolutely brilliant time..
These guys were definitely the highlight of the day for us :)
Their sound is really quite varied (but consistently very strong), so I embedded a few of their tunes below. If anything, they sound even better live, so if you get the chance: Go see'em! They're well worth it :)
One man and his guitar, Copson has a crazy broad vocal range and the half hour we spent listening to him just flew by:
Buzzard King were the first band to come on at the Portland and what a great start that was to the day!
With a little luck we should be getting a chance to hear some more live music soon at Oxjam :)
Have a most awesome start to the week you guys!
