Ramblin' Roots Revue High Wycombe, Day 1 - the velvety tones of St Catherine's Child, the English early Springsteen that is Pete Gow and the musically chilled politics of Our Man in the Field.

Drove back up to the Staffordshire Moorlands as I was promoting a gig by John Miller & his Country Casuals, supported by locals Unlucky Strike:

I then drove back to High Wycombe (poor planning on my part) for the final day of the Ramblin' Roots Revue:

Holly Carter & Travis Stock, playing with Nashville's Don Gallardo:

Next week it's Caitlin Rose and Kassi Valazza on Monday & Tuesday in Manchester, then off to Kilkenny the following weekend for the Roots Festival - 25th Anniversary edition.

Caitlin Rose and Kassi Valazza necessitated a stop-over in Manchester, but well worth it.

Then I crossed the Irish sea again to visit Kilkenny for the 25th Roots Festival - I've played 6 of them as one of the acts on the free Music Trail with my band Elvis Fontenot and attended as many as a punter.
Highlights this time for me were the exuberant Fantastic Cat, Kassi Vallaza (again), Chuck Prophet and Austin Lucas.

Nashville's Eric Brace & Thomm Jutz shared lots of anecdotes about Johnny Cash and Emmylou Harris in their performance for Biddulph up in Arms - melodic songs, great harmonies and fine picking.

Bill and the Belles at St Lawrence's Church Biddulph - damn, they were good fun.

Black Deer Festival - first two days - brilliant weather. last day it pissed it down and half the audience buggered off.
Brennen Leigh and Melissa Carper were wonderful:

Then I got home, re-packed my bags and went to see Bruce Springsteen in Dusseldorf

I then attended the Down by the River Festival in Venlo in the Netherlands with Dietmar & Marion Leibecke, main organisers of the Static Roots Festival in Oberhausen that I've stayed in Germany for - I also attended a local mini-festival in a park in Mulheim an der Ruhr with them, where a rockabilly band, the Silverettes, played. Bonus gig tonight is Canadian singer-songwriter Jim Bryson in Haldern, Germany.

Then I attended the Static Roots Festival in Oberhausen, near Dusseldorf, organised by my friend Dietmar Leibecke: Evangeline Gentle - what a voice. John Blek & the Rats - fabulous reformation show.

John Bramwell at the half moon, putney, sunday afternoon. what a great gig, he is so good live and in a small venue, about 200, you are right there. Brilliant. Rh and Shez, acoustic set there would be bang on!!. :Hoorah
Hope everyone is well and happy. ..>

I promoted Hannah Aldridge & Robbie Cavanagh for Biddulph up in Arms at St Lawrence's Church. Both are local faves and didn't disappoint.

I photographed all three days of the North Shropshire Big Weekend - a cajun and zydeco festival in the middle of the countryside, featuring top Louisiana/US and European cajun and zydeco acts. This year, Corey Ledet and Latasha "Dat Zydeco Gurl" Covington represented the US zydeco fraternity, with Cameron Fontenot and Austin Monceaux the cajun side - Cameron and Austin's luggage remained in Atlanta unfortunately so they had to go and buy some replacement clothing. Fortunately their instruments made it.

I attended the Boygenius gig at Halifax Piece Hall with my two nieces. I was probably the second oldest person there (My mate from Morecambe who was also there is older than me...)

I then photographed The Long Road Festival, near Rugby. Stayed in a right dodgy hotel, but as I was hardly there, it didn't matter too much.

The War and Treaty - stunning!

Courtney Marie Andrews - Future Yard Birkenhead. Great little venue, but a trek to get to in the car with it being a train strike day. CMA hasn't disappointed me yet and she definitely didn't do on this occasion.

Charley Crockett and Ags Connolly at the Band on the Wall in Manchester. Didn't get a reply about photo accreditation in time, so I took this on a compact camera. As for the gig - honky tonk country, roots and soul with punk intensity.
