Purbeck Musician at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival

August 27th, 2015

Sounds about right!

 
 

Top festival that Purbeck Valley Folk Festival. A great place to test out some new acoustic fingerstyle arrangements. Many in the audience will be some of my good friends and it will be a joy to catch up with them.

 
 

I will be playing this Friday 28 Aug at 17:40 – 18:20 in the Long Barn. The festival is being held at a different location this year, so we will all be very interested to check out the new Purbeck Valley Farmhouse venue. Big up to Catherine Burke for all her hard work in organising everything.

I knew Wickham Music Festival would be fun

August 15th, 2015

Hats off to Wickham

 

Record crowds, great line up, lovely audience and perfect weather!

 

Good to see some old friends – and make lots of new ones! Big Ta to The Alistair Goodwin Band for getting me on the bill…..

Pete Christie thanks the Wickham audience

 

 

Ask me what I like about Studland Music Festival

August 15th, 2015

Obviously the music…

 

The great location on The Isle of Purbeck, the vast array of beers, the huge audience…

 

…and getting to hang out with my great music friend, Jim Etherington. Pippa at The Bankes Arms invites us to play on the same bill just so we can catch up.

Thomas Tripp new stage and sound system works

August 15th, 2015

Very impressed with the set up!

Easy sound system to work with, plenty of space, much better to engage with the audience from a proper stage and the lighting helps too.

 

Ali and Simon have certainly made The Thomas Tripp into a proper live music venue in Christchurch; plus I get to catch up with many of my loyal music mates.

Invited back next year at Wimborne Minster Folk Festival

August 15th, 2015

Very Pleased!

Seems my multi-skilling worked: #musician, MC, bouncer, audience directions, roadie, sound, PR, sweeper, babysitter…good fun!

 

Karen Laird did a great job organising so many local talented musicians to play…and we all got paid! Lovely Wimborne Minster Folk Festival
