We came on after a beautiful and delicate set by the Tony Gould Trio that held the audience spellbound.
Wanting to sustain that moment, we changed our set, starting with Fool On The Hill: primarily guitar (Kevin) with Ann’s beautiful flute and just a little bass (Daniel) and drums (Allan) in the middle.
Earlier that day, I’d heard Cute described as a drum solo with instrumental fills so, to Allan’s surprise, he introduced Cute with a 16-bar drum solo.
Wade had wowed a small audience on Saturday night in the Stadium, but Sunday night saw a large and enthusiastic audience enjoy his mellow tones as he took us through jazz standards, musicals, more Beatles and a sensuous rendition of Mustang Sally (with backing vocals from a significant proportion of the audience!).
Thanks to the kind audience who took the trouble to come up and tell us that this set was the highlight of the Festival.
