How lucky am I? The lovely people at Looe Music Festival have given me a guest press ticket for the weekend and so on Friday its time to pack up the Clio and set off to a the beautiful seaside town of Looe for a weekend packed full of diverse and brilliant music.
As well as the three main stages that will be set up on the beach the whole town itself will be buzzing with street stalls selling great food and lots of other covetable goodies or the hoards of music lovers who will be flooding into the town.
The acts on offer are a broad sweep of musical genres as extreme as the ultimate geezers Chas and Dave through to rockers Reef and with everything from folk and world music in between.
Saturday in particular is practically my idea of musical heaven with Lisbee Stainton, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, the amazing Winter Mountain and the unsurpassable Seth Lakeman and the guys on just before Reef. So much good music in one day!.
If anyone out there is thinking 'What shall I do this weekend?' may I suggest that you could do a lot worse than head off to Looe for a weekend of fun, music, great atmosphere and if the gods are smiling, who knows, maybe even a bit of sun as well.
