Back from a weekend at the Acoustic Festival Of Britain, great weekend as usual even though the quality of the acts wasn't as good this year. Old proggers Wishbone Ash, with only Martin Turner , left from the original line up gave a good show, so did late 80's band The Christians, Howard Jones put on a decent show, a little too relaxed at times but like the jazzier edge he put on a couple of tracks. Biggest disappointment were Fairport Convention so so boring, I suppose you have to be a fan.

Best 2 finds of the weekend for me were;
Verdisa, they played a mix of Blues, Reggae, funk and Soul and it worked, they play well as a band, a feeling of true togetherness,helps a live show if the band look like they enjoy what they do, the vocalist is very good, hints of Jamiroquai and Sting.
Mo Kenney a Canadian singer songwriter, nice voice and great songs, only thing I could fault was I felt a few more upbeat songs would help, even though she did admit she has only ever wrote one happy song, and titled it as so, she did a very good cover of Bowie;s Five Miles

One my all-time favourite bands

Did Martin Turner use two lead guitarists in the style of Andy Powell/Ted Turner like Wishbone of old ?

2 Electro Acoustic leads, with Turner on bass, even though he plays it like it was a lead guitar.

You Need To let Go really got the crowd dancing, even I had my heel off the floor with a raised knee.

I Faked It is nice, I've downloaded both her albums not had time to play them yet but there 1 and 2 on tomorrows playlist.

Just to clarify, Martin Turner's band is not allowed to call itself Wishbone Ash, after a court case won in favour of Andy Powell, who has kept the Wishbone Ash band running since its formation. I saw the Powell Ash at Holmfirth two years ago and they were excellent. Ironically, Powell is the only original member in that band as well. Ted Turner is a big loss, although he occasionally guests with Martin's band. Such a shame that they can't make up their differences.

Very much so Gandi

We need to get at least one of their first three albums in the Prem/Champs/L1/L2 Album poll 8-)

Even Hector may enjoy Wishbone Ash :shock: :wink:

Indeed. I'll stick the debut album in when one of mine inevitably gets relegated from the league. :) Gonna stick it on now, for old times sake.

Yeah, they went by the name Martin Turner plays Wishbone Ash(or something similar), he didn't mention the other 2 guitarists but did say a piece about Steve Upton who is now living in France but when he comes home they meet up for a meal out, Upton would love to get back on the sticks but isn't allowed through doctors orders, dodgy ticker.

Incredibly jealous, Ges, Cave is very definitely on my 'must see' list. That looks a great set list, how was the gig?
