Reblog: How much musical talent can you cope with seeing in one day?

Standard

Wow!! Absolutely wow!! Folkstock was an amazing event! Unfortunately my lack of WiFi hotspots and less than impressive phone battery life (darn you iOS 7!) meant I didn’t really have the chance to blog on the go as I’d intended – but I managed a few tweets and some Instragram  posts too over the course of the day. I camped out at Aldenham Country Park last night (so I could make the most of some of the tasty ales on sale!), so after returning back from the wildness (humour me) – I’ve just about located, downloaded, rotated and uploaded (*breathe*) the majority of my photos, notes and video clips (we have many more to come though from our fantastic videographer), so you can expect lots of things to be appearing on this blog over the next week or so. In the mean time I found this fantastic blog post from Redwood Photography, so thought I’d share to whet your appetite a little…

Redwood Photography: Folkstock

How much musical talent can you cope with seeing in one day?

Folkstock was a bit mind-blowing….a diverse array of artists that started off really well and that just seemed to get better and better as the day went on.  Great festival….top job by organiser Helen Meissner and team.

Best acts?  Well the headliners were all good of course…The Willows, Lucy Ward, Boho Dancer….but other stand-out acts for me were Luke Jackson, Tom Moon, The Good The Bad and The Ginger, Ben Smith (blew me away), Flaming June (great stage energy), Fred’s House (been listening to their stuff for a while now), Alice (check out her single ‘Soldier’ on iTunes – seriously good!) and The Fallows (yeah I know I’m biased ‘cos they’re from Cov…but they’re still brilliant!).

Thank you Redwood Photography!

Beautiful banners & shirt selections

A few weeks ago I posted a blog about the fantastic art work that was created for Folkstock – so it makes sense to follow that up by showing you how that artwork has been used.

First off, you may have seen some of the Folkstock banners around, brightening up the place – I think they look great! And better still, the local community have been hugely supportive by offering to put some up in front of their houses, etc.

Another, awesome way that Amy Pettingill’s colourful, swirly art work has been used is on the mock-ups for the Folkstock merchandise and t’shirts. Which one do you prefer? Let me know – tweet me @katefolkstock
