For the next couple of weeks you are invited to join me on my (now) annual visit to the Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival.
It is much like any other big festival, as you can tell from this first shot from Friday evening. It is such a great event because the age range it caters for is summed up in this picture, and the music has something for all tastes. Despite the title it isn't all jazz and blues (although that covers a pretty wide spectrum of music in itself).
We have been the last 3 years. For the last 2 it has coincided with Caroline's birthday which makes it even more of an event. We have come to know quite a few other regular visitors and you could not have a friendlier environment. The late night sessions in the beer tent are the best. If they are still alive, I want the Alligators to play my funeral just in case I am not actually dead. They can always get me on my feet and dancing.
Despite the rather restrained look of this photo, we are about to be entertained by the amazing Cherry-Lee Mewis - 'powerhouse blues meets hillbillly boogie' we were promised, and she didn't disappoint...
