Wednesday, we had a rehearsal with Graham, pedal steel, for next week's Whitby gig (sounding great) then it was all about Saturday's Sesh - Hull's brilliant one day festival in and around Humber Street. We started the day checking out the Fully York Festival at the Fulford Arms where we caught Boss Caine's set before we all headed over on the A1079 to Hull. Lovely sunny day and a completely packed festival. Loads of great solo musicians and bands. We played on the Speak Easy Stage hosted by our good buddie Adam Brodie. Boss Caine played after us then we all skedaddled back to York to catch the end of the Fully Fest and the experience that is RSJ. Fantastic stuff.
Rounded off the weekend with a wander around the Fossgate Festival where we bumped into lots of lovely friends including Vinnie Whitehead who was running an open mic at the Bluebell. Sang a few songs accompanied by Harrison Rimmer on cajon.
Two more top gigs next week then we're on our hols :-)
