Driving through Parham and Hacheston this morning you could still see where last week's snow drifts must have caused a problem ... driving through Easton this afternoon you could still see where last week's snow drifts must have caused a problem.

♫ Thomas Dolby, the Young Zulu Warriors and Devon Sproule at the very excellent Maverick Festival in 2008-10 and Easton.

Terra Lightfoot at Easton Farm Park♫ The Maverick belated Thanksgiving concert at Easton Farm Park was a stonker.  All four turns could play and sing; youthfullness from Jack Allen and Ella Spencer, skinny jeaned angular tallfullness from Essex songwriter Tom Parkes, self deprecating humour and fine guitar from British bluesman Tom Attah, plus bill topping the awesome power of Canadian Terra Lightfoot playing as a trio ... keep doing it Maverick.

Terra Lightfoot and band - pic Dustin Rabin♫ Judging by YouTube Canadian Terra Lightfoot doesn't mess about and a bit of rocker, what's more last night Ella spoke highly of her, we're guessing Ella saw Terra at this summer's Maverick ... we failed there.  You can see Terra and band (just one of two UK dates) plus blueser Tom Attah Friday in Easton at Maverick's Thanksgiving Party.

♫ When Peppery Productions presented the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (ten years ago!) at Easton Farm Park we weren't keen.  We'd heard them on the radio and thought them just one joke but we were persuaded to go and how wrong we were; witty, creative and Hester singing Teenage Dirtbag was a genuinely moving experience.  So very sorry to learn that founder member Kitty Lux passed away in June.

The Henry Brothers at the 2017 Maverick Festival♫ Like we said as always bands we're yet to know we like at the tenth Maverick Festival in Easton.  Friday night we rocked out to the rocking Orphan Colours (awkward name) benefitting from the power saw tenor sax of Nik Carter.  Saturday on the undocumented Travelling Medicine Show stage we were charmed by SJ Mortimer and just one Flying Pig ... more here

Police Dog Hogan at the Maverick Festival ♫ This weekend is the tenth Maverick Festival at Easton and this will be our eighth.  We know tonight we will enjoy Police Dog Hogan and tomorrow The Henry Brothers plus Albert (not Alvin or Arthur) Lee but the joy is there will be bands and players we don't know we like yet ... looking forward to it.

What's happening next to the school in Easton is houses and possibly a car park.

Something is happening at the side of Easton school that might be a car park.

Suffolk Young Farmers Country Fair this Sunday at Easton Farm Park ... they're a bit non-committal about what time it starts.

St George's Day - the patron saint of England

Lynne Hanson and the Good Intentions♫ Last night Canadian Lynne Hanson and her band hit the spot at the Eye Bank and we were sonically tickled by the melodic bass licks of Mari Joseé Dandeneau.  In 2014 we photographed Lynne on crutches at Easton Farm Park and it has taken three operations and until this year for her to be right again ... pleased to hear it.

Suffolk Young Farmers Country Fair tomorrow (the forecast looks better than today) at Easton Farm Park, not free admission but there are family tickets.

One our fails last year was not catching Debbie Bond at the Maverick festival Easton.  This April she'll be touring her new album Enjoy The Ride in Europe and there are still some UK gaps in her diary. ♫

Yes, the Easton Harriers were originally called the Hamilton Harriers.

The Market Hill FramlinghamHarriers on the Market Hill Framlingham before what's now Country Vision got the mock Tudor half timbering.  Not unreasonable to assume it's the Easton Harriers.  We've fiddled with the image and we can see HARRIERS in the annotation but don't think it's EASTON ... it might be HAMILTON and once upon a time Lord and Lady Hamilton pretty much owned Easton ...

th 2 Jul

Easton Pre-school are easily the most popular recipients of the Co-op green plastic discs in both Framlingham and Wickham Market.
