No doubt Pete will submit some appropriate words re the Festival. I sent some photos earlier in the week, and more available. If they haven’t been received please let me know and I’ll re-send!

By the way we enjoyed a plethora of very good ales (definitely not of the “session”variety!

See you boys soon?



PS will also let you have some photos of last night’s superb Sherman Robertson gig at Oswestry.

Hi Gra
Impatient little blighter – next thing you’ll be telling me Chester will get promoted this season!!!
Lionel has a review ready and sent it to me for a few facts – I’ve sent it back so expect it shortly.
You should have been there – it was the best yet.
Superb atmosphere in the big barn with faultless performances by every band.
As for Big George – he was the real deal – awesome.
Check out his performance on You tube at The Cluny in Newcastle.
Hope to persuade Gary Hood to get him on at Burnley next year.
Gary, if you read this, get in touch quick – it doesn’t get much better.

Hi guys – nice to hear from you both. Glad you had a good one – would have been there but for Jacqui’s sister getting married. Hopefully see you guys soon, regards to all ex-Hookers!
