Terra Lightfoot at last year's Maverick Thanksgiving partyThis weekend it's the eleventh Maverick Festival at Easton Farm Park and they've all been wonderful and miraculously virtually no rain which looks assured again.  Promoter Paul Spencer is speaking highly of the Cordovas who close the outdoor Southern Sounds stage Saturday.  What really impresses us is rocker Terra Lightfoot with her band will be playing at the after party in the Easton White Horse ... just a hundred tickets and a good chunk already gone ... ♫

The Henry Brothers at the 2017 Maverick Festival♫ Like we said as always bands we're yet to know we liked 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 (they gave us a cd ... appreciated) and charmed on the Barn stage by the Worry Dolls (excellent name)  ... plus the Henry Brothers replaced our lost They Were Young And Cheery Though Neither One Could Swim badge (also appreciated).

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.

Sonia Leigh at the Maverick FestivalLast night at the Maverick festival in Easton Sonia Leigh was her rock'n roll self and said she'd sing Bar for us this afternoon; in the Moonshine Bar the gentle voice of Joel Rafael was matched by the steel guitar of Brit CJ Hillman and we're planning to attend Stompin' Dave Allen's flatfooting workshop tomorrow morning. ♫

Meaghan Blanchard♫ It was so packed at last night's Maverick concert in Easton Farm Park that some were watching the show on cctv in the bar.  Being appreciated were local band The Kevin Duffy Band, British banjo annoyer Dan Walsh and the sweetly soprano Canadian voice of red haired Meaghan Blanchard.  Next Maverick show is February at the farm park and promoter Paul Spencer must have dug into his mad money because bill topping is Diana Jones.

Lynne Hanson at Easton Farm Park♫ Depping for Brigitte Demeyer at Easton Farm Park last night Canadian Lynne Hanson arrived on crutches and her whole left leg in a hinged splint.  'Are you fed up of telling people how you hurt your leg?'  'No'  'How did you hurt your leg?'  'Playing touch football, I twisted awkwardly'  'US or Canadian rules?'  'Errrr'  'Three downs or four?'  'Three'  'So Canadian rules then.'  Would be very nice to have her back at next year's Maverick. ♫

Breezy Peyton at the Maverick Festival♫ It had to happen in time but the rain at the Maverick Festival this weekend in the Easton Farm Park didn't seem to spoil anything much.  A sultryGraham Shipcote at the Maverick Festival Friday night was quite magic with multiple vans selling interesting foods, loads of bar staff on a bar that stayed open till end of play and Police Dog Hogan have just got bigger and better plus closing by Rev Peyton's Big Damn Band who were positively nuclear ... Breezy Mrs Peyton is an entertainment in herself.  On a moist Sunday our Maverick was pleasantly ended by the dry Geordie wit of Graham Shipcote.
