Festivals, Fans and Dog Awards

Well that was a pretty good weekend.

Saturday: Indietracks

The Church (photo) at Indietracks is a beautiful 100 degree deathtrap of loveliness. Being the total professionals we are (shhh), we powered through despite the heat, but yes, black was a bad choice on what was possibly the hottest day of the year.

We met some lovely people (and owls) as well as catching up with old friends, and spent some time hanging out with our fans, see?

Dean Wareham’s set later on was really great (and I got to meet him too!), and we saw some of Gruff Rhys before we had to head off.

Sunday: The Folk Forest at Tramlines

I was so glad we were playing on an outdoor stage this year, especially given my fondness for Endcliffe Park. It was BUSY. View from the stage:

There were many dogs in the park. Here are the Folk Forest Dog Awards:

Best Dog – Winner

The Best Dog Award goes to my friend’s greyhound, Ace, who wears my hat extremely well:

Best Dog – Runner Up

The barking dog who responded from afar when I dedicated ‘Dog’ to the dogs in the park.

Congratulations to all the contenders. There was a lot of competition and in my eyes, all the dogs in the park were winners.

Here’s our set list from the weekend:

So that’s that, the weekend’s over. But wait a minute – there’s more! It’s Cardiff this Friday, and then we’ll be focusing on getting ready for Roving Women at Cutlers’ Hall, followed by another festival in Manchester in October. And of course, I’ll be busy getting the album ready for release…

In other news, T-shirts are selling pretty quickly (thanks!) and some of the men’s sizes are starting to run out already. Get yours here.
