American Independence Day

Lucy Sampson one half of Honey and the Bear♫ Today Saturday 4 July is US Independence Day but more importantly your local pub should re-open.  Let's hope bottled beer hasn't reprogrammed your taste buds and you have to relearn draught.  This afternoon you could use up those bottles while Maverick virtually festival on that there Facepack.  We'll be looking out for rocker Terra Lightfoot and local Honey and the Bear.

Terra Lightfoot at the 2017 Maverick Thanksgiving♫ The thirteenth lucky for all Maverick Festival this summer in Easton has a firming up programme with some excellent names including the Legendary Shack Shakers, California Feetwarmers and Henhouse Prowlers.  Also appearing is lady guitar abuser Terra Lightfoot whom we saw at Maverick's 2017 Thanksgiving ... she took no prisoners.

Zoe Rubens 'Lost in Maze'Over the weekend at Artdog's second Art in the Barn (the Barn is in Easton Farm Park) we were very taken with Zoë Rubens objet trouvé type pieces.  We had a nostalgic flash of pleasure recognising a Brooks bicycle cone spanner in one sculpture:).  ArtDog will be showing early next month at ArtSpace Woodbridge.

♫ We were impressed Sunday morning how busy Maverick was.  The festival's first ever serious rain on the preceding day had not prompted significant (if any) early leavers.  This year the unprogrammed Medicine Show stage has moved ... more here

♫ Friday night at Easton Farm Park the Maverick Thanksgiving Party hadDon Gallardo at Maverick's Thanksgiving Party sufficient eating and drinking that the Earl Soham Vic ran out about three quarters through the evening.  We much enjoyed the Henry Brothers country arrangement of I Can't Stand Mondays, perhaps Cher's Bang Bang next?  The excellent Don Gallardo closed his The Last Waltz anniversary set with I Shall Be ...more here

Banjo Jen on the Medicine Show stage at Maverick♫ Magnificent weather for another brilliant Maverick producing some wonderful hats and for us the newbs on the Medicine Show stage perhaps the most rewarding, especially Banjo Jen.  Our ears pricked at a very lateral keyboard solo from the Cordovas closing the Southern Sounds stage Saturday..  When we pointed out that theHannah Rose Platt on the Medicine Show stage lead singer appeared to really fancy himself Rachael's friend asked for my long lens to get a better look and then said If I was that good looking I'd fancy myself.

Sunday a very pleasant conversation with Alan Mutimer and we suggested that Hachfest might return in its original form Hacheston Music Day ... who knows?

Terra Lightfoot at Easton Farm Park♫ The Maverick belated Thanksgiving concert at Easton Farm Park was a stonker.  All four turns could play and sing; youthfullness from Jack Allen and Ella Spencer, skinny jeaned angular tallfullness from Essex songwriter Tom Parkes, self deprecating humour and fine guitar from British bluesman Tom Attah, plus bill topping the awesome power of Canadian Terra Lightfoot playing as a trio ... keep doing it Maverick.

Terra Lightfoot and band - pic Dustin Rabin♫ Judging by YouTube Canadian Terra Lightfoot doesn't mess about and a bit of rocker, what's more last night Ella spoke highly of her, we're guessing Ella saw Terra at this summer's Maverick ... we failed there.  You can see Terra and band (just one of two UK dates) plus blueser Tom Attah Friday in Easton at Maverick's Thanksgiving Party.
