Back To Life

OK, Summer Sundae's done. Only a couple of acts really caught my eye yesterday, and there was only one standout, Imelda May - her sense of fun is infectious and I really enjoyed shooting her and wish I could have stayed to watch the rest of the set.

On the pleasant surprise list, we have Devon Sproule, a folk singer who I caught on the main stage.

But my first prize rosette for surprise of the festival was local girl Becky Syson who I caught in the Musician tent early on Sunday morning having been unceremoniously evicted from my hotel room by an early check-out time. I'd been drawn in by the promise of free tea, but stayed for the tunes and chilled out atmosphere. It was nice to finally have a 'festival moment' - and of course, I didn't have my camera out. Give her a listen here.
