Well Wowo turned out to be more amazing than could possibly have been expected. Last time I was down there were some lovely laid back tunes around the camp fire, but this time we were treated to some amazingly talented musicians performing in the sites new and huge tipi. One of the highlights were Georgia Lewis and Friends, a Brighton based folk group singing with close harmonies and driving rhythms on so many Irish tunes. I will certainly be checking them out at a gig again soon, and it was a privilege to be able to play alongside them during the evening. But the talent didn’t stop there as there were performers coming out with top class tunes from all around the tent. Dave and Mary were also completely excellent (not sure now if Mary was Dave’s accordion or the singer performing after him… but both were great to be honest) The American tunes from my banjo went down well and I’m looking forward to popping back again at a weekend soon.
The sun was out too for the weekend, and on the Sunday Ceara managed to video me doing a couple of tunes after a very laid back afternoon catching the rays (and recovering from the all night music the previous day!) Catch a bit of it here:
