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.

♫ When Peppery Productions presented the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (ten years ago!) at Easton Farm Park we weren't keen.  We'd heard them on the radio and thought them just one joke but we were persuaded to go and how wrong we were; witty, creative and Hester singing Teenage Dirtbag was a genuinely moving experience.  So very sorry to learn that founder member Kitty Lux passed away in June.

The Henry Brothers at the 2017 Maverick Festival♫ Like we said as always bands we're yet to know we like at the tenth Maverick Festival in Easton.  Friday night we rocked out to the rocking Orphan Colours (awkward name) benefitting from the power saw tenor sax of Nik Carter.  Saturday on the undocumented Travelling Medicine Show stage we were charmed by SJ Mortimer and just one Flying Pig ... more here

Police Dog Hogan at the Maverick Festival ♫ This weekend is the tenth Maverick Festival at Easton and this will be our eighth.  We know tonight we will enjoy Police Dog Hogan and tomorrow The Henry Brothers plus Albert (not Alvin or Arthur) Lee but the joy is there will be bands and players we don't know we like yet ... looking forward to it.

Lynne Hanson and the Good Intentions♫ Last night Canadian Lynne Hanson and her band hit the spot at the Eye Bank and we were sonically tickled by the melodic bass licks of Mari Joseé Dandeneau.  In 2014 we photographed Lynne on crutches at Easton Farm Park and it has taken three operations and until this year for her to be right again ... pleased to hear it.
