MAYFEST
At Mayfest we sang at five locations around the town, performing a selection of songs, some from the William Morris Songbook, and some newer material.
LOSTFEST
At Lostfest, we played a 40 minute slot on the main stage (11.30 am!!), and two shorter sessions in the Social Club (1230 pm) and inside the Church (2.30 pm). We were very pleased to meet up with our friends Emma & Lizzie from Salt & Sky, and Figurehead. We sang songs which reflected our experiences as a band over our first year performing, including tributes to Phil Ochs, and Glenn Frey.
Thanks for Lostfest photos, Phil Ouless

TEIGNMOUTH FOLK FESTIVAL
What a great, friendly place for a Festival!

TOLPUDDLE MARTYRS FESTIVAL

Catie and Eddie sang two songs on the open mic: Willie McBride and H-Bomb’s Thunder.

‘H-Bomb’s Thunder’ was maybe not entirely the wisest choice with so many Unite and GMB members around. Whoops! However, here are a few more photos, including one of the new craze: Pokemon-Gopuddle

Here also are some of the wonderful banners we saw on the march (and Eddie’s photo of Jeremy Corbyn!!!)
