I've woken totally whacked out this morning from dancing my little socks off. Red Mel and I headed over to Dartmouth for the Dart Music Festival and met up with Salty Dog and a whole bunch of friends who'd hired a cottage and were having a house party. This amazing event, with over one hundred acts, is funded by donations. It's become part of my annual calendar. I'm keen to buy a wristband to contribute but others put what they can into collection buckets.
So for a mere tenner I saw so much. Acoustic acts, a duo with a take on flamenco, jazz in a pub, a man I was acquainted with from when he performed at Chagstock who plays two guitars at once....The list goes on and on. And the absolutely unforgettable OMG! It's the Church. Check them out at their website SexyJesus.com. You don't see a combo of gospel music and comedy or a man with a crucifix emblazoned on his Y-fronts every day.
To keep our energy up we ate French patisserie and fish and chips and drank hot chocolate and ale. We browsed in clothes shops for we have a wedding to go to. I have a naughty purchase to 'fess up to in another post. In between rain showers there was sunshine. I played with the camera on my phone. My photos of the musical acts are no great shakes but I'm pleased with the pictures that I took in the park. You'd never guess it was Dartmouth. It looks absolutely tropical.
