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.

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. ♫

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.

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.

♫ Guaranteed lovely weather this coming weekend, always is for the MaverickMaverick Festival 2014 Festival at Easton farm park.  Looking forward to rocking out with the Reverend Peyton (though he does clash with the Goat Roper Rodeo Band), having our hearts broken by Mary Gauthier, hopefully touching Holly Williams ...

Fat Band and the Broadside BoysTONIGHT! The Fat Band (prepping for a gig in Jerusalem?!) and the Broadside Boys at the Riverside Centre Stratford St Andrew + Maverick Festival pre-festival hog roast and hi-jinx at the Easton White Horse.  The festival is 4-6 July with a lineup including Hank Williams' granddaughter Holly ... we just want to touch her. ♫

The Good Lovelies Feral Mouth Maverick two girls

♫ What did we say?  What a beautiful weekend, we got to eat Jambalaya ... twice, recognised Christopher Green, witnessed Alex Simler's first solo gig because the rest of Mad Staring Eyes were stuck in traffic, heard the best joke of the festival from the Good Lovelies and was pleasured by their innate tunefulness, noted how many bands were using stomp boxes, toe tapped to the youthful energy of Goat Roper Rodeo, observed local man Neil Innes triumph both on and off stage, found that Andrew Duhon kept us listening to his perhaps stylised but just plain enjoyable chest voice, heard that Two Fingers of Firewater have broken up, spotted half of the Henry Brothers without a hat on, the two bars didn't run out of beer though a mercy dash was needed ... and a Scotsman did what no Englishman has done for 77 years.

♫Tomorrow evening Kim Richey will be playing Maverick at Easton Farm Park in the Tack Room ... bit of a walk but worth it.  Our thanks to Maverick for renewing their ad, well we do regularly get 14,000+ visitors a month.  You could reach that happy 14,000 with just £9.95 for a two month ad.

♫When we visited a Rabble Chorus rehearsal in Easton three years ago we were impressed by Kirsty Logan's arrangements but there wasn't that many of them.  Now there's enough for a flash mob in the Ipswich John Lewis with Barbara Ann Spencer taking lead.  PS: This song and choir on the cd of last year's Maverick Festival.♫

Maverick Thanksgiving Ranch PartyDennis Ellsworth at DP's AldeburghAs a taster for Maverick's second annual Thanksgiving Ranch Party (with Americana themed food) at Easton Farm Park this Saturday Maverick are presenting Canadian singer songwriter Dennis Ellsworth in DP's Aldeburgh this Friday for FREE.♫

♫ The Maverick concert at the Halesworth Cut tonight is part of the town's art festival and we're desolate we can't make it but with a following wind we should be snapping their second annual Thanksgiving ranch party next month at Easton farm park.

The Ragged String Band♫ We think we know that the mother of one half of Madison Violet is ill which is why their UK tour has been cancelled.  They were to play Maverick at Easton Farm Park this Monday and though the pre-booked can get a refund the concert is still on with Brooks Williams, new to us The Arlenes, and from the Maverick Festival 2010 The Ragged String Band.

barmaid serving Brewers Gold ... mmmmThe monthly Maverick concerts moved temporarily to Easton farm park last Friday with the audience sitting at small tables with red tablecloths and table lights, felt quite sophisticated just being there.  We've said it before they can all sing in country and Society and The Deadly Gentleman gave us no reason to change our minds plus the latter's banjo player Greg Liszt rendered a blistering Lonesome Road Blues as a tribute to Earl Scruggs who had died two days earlier.

♫ Returning at this summer's Maverick festival in Easton are Otis Lee Crenshaw and Otis Gibbs (bet that'll cause some confusion) plus Police Dog Hogan Friday and Saturday whilst somewhat closer in the middle distance Isy Suttie from Peep Show is top of the bill at Jokers in the Ipswich Manor Ballroom Sunday week.

The Henry Brothers♫The Maverick concerts used to be at the Easton White Horse but the function room at the back of theLucy Sampson Framlingham Crown is bigger and early last night promoter Paul Spencer was already jubilant at the near heaving turn out for his first show there.  Ukulele goddess Lucy Sampson now supported by bass player Ian Bearcroft delighted, the Henry (they're not really) Brothers at the end of their set sang without mikes and Brooks Williams who might be described as a light tenor played guitar with the deceptive ease and authority that only comes with having done it forever.

♫ In the evening we went to Maverick's ranch party in Easton and got to see Norwich based Vagaband who over the past couple of years have polished up very nicely thank you.  We love drummers who stand up ... especially when they use a box for their kick drum.  Top of the bill Hank Wangford with his band including pedal steeler BJ Cole produced moments of pure country heaven.

Maverick tonight at the Easton White Horse is Kara Grainger and Andrew Duhon, really wish we could be there ... like we've said before they can all sing in country.

♫Judging by all the parked cars in Easton Saturday night Buddy Morlock (recordees of his songs include Garth Brooks, Nanci Griffith and Joan Baez) was being very popular in the White Horse.

Police Dog Hogan♫ More stalls at this year's Maverick festival in Easton, perhaps fewer cowboy hats and Police Dog Hogan stormed the place with more dancers than we've ever seen plus youthful air banjoists.  From Detroit the Orbitsuns' Vinnie Dombroski asked the audience What else you gonna do?  Go bowling?  Not round here Vinnie.

Today there are clawhammer, flatfooting and uke workshops and tonight more Orbitsuns, Otis Lee Crenshaw, Melanie and the excellent (if poorly named) Vagaband close the evening.
