Wow, that was a good night out! Thanks to Guy Falkingham for asking us to play at the first Hull Folk and Maritime Festival. We played at Fruit, and we had a terrific time. It was already full when we got there at 7 pm, just in time to catch Ukulele Bill introducing the first of a fine collection of performers. We loved it all – was especially good to catch up with Dave Greaves who played a fine, cool set. OrganikHarmoniK were out there, really enjoyed Beggar’s Bridge, especially the Jimmy-Page-of-the-low-whistle solo and then, the highlight of the evening – ta daa!…Blackbeard’s Tea Party. What a band, they played a storming set and we danced ’til it was time to go.
Nice one Guy and Shane, look forward to next time. Great sound and lights, and good to meet up with Max and Liam recording the gig. Just one more thing…Whip, Jamboree! We love Nick Cave, but hey… Blackbeard’s Tea Party!
The line up, all great.
