Fire in the Mountain III

And so it has begun. The glorious festival season is under way. I have just returned from Evolution Festival in Newcastle where, amidst crowds of beautiful creatures of the north, I saw the fabulous AlunaGeorge, Bastille, Jake Bugg and Modestep among others.

And now we head west, to the heart of Wales, for Fire in the Mountain III. I shall be performing with the lovely Rosie Sleightholme - please visit her website HERE - on Saturday at Owl's World Stage, and on both sides of our set I will take in the beauty of the Welsh mountains, dance like a hippy with one hand in the air (the other clutching a hearty cider, no doubt) and take in the therapeutic sounds of the true folk artists of our country.

Last year I loved the festival because... you can bathe in the cool river in the morning; you can sweat out your mess in a natural sauna; + you can take part in feel-good holistic classes. The food available is home-cooked goodness served at specified meal times – think communal dining around a camp fire – and the drink is strong and locally-produced. And there is a great mix of music to watch, walk to and shake to. Watch this space for how it all looks.

Until then, peace out.
