♫ We feared that Maverick being two months later this year and so darker and perhaps colder it wouldn't be as popular as previously, we were wrong ... more here

Yesterday on Boretts Farm Lane between Easton and Kettleburgh it was only four passing angels giving us a push (thank you thank you thank you thank you) that stopped us being stuck on a bit of a .slope, can't imagine it's much better today.

Fresh from visiting Wickham Market, Easton and Kettleburgh the night before Daddy Christmas cruised Framlingham last night. Lots of peeps waiting for Santa and lots of elves collecting for Fram's Hour Community... the traffic was encouragingly understanding too.

Artdog's outdoor show in Easton over the weekend seemed unlikely with the persistent rain and wind. It made eminently more sense when we visited Sunday and found that the majority of pieces were metal animal sculptures by Iain Nutting.

♫ Today Saturday 4 July is US Independence Day but more importantly your local pub should re-open. Let's hope bottled beer hasn't reprogrammed your taste buds and you have to relearn draught. This afternoon you could use up those bottles while Maverick virtually festival on that there Facepack. We'll be looking out for rocker Terra Lightfoot and local Honey and the Bear.

♫ The thirteenth lucky for all Maverick Festival this summer in Easton has a firming up programme with some excellent names including the Legendary Shack Shakers, California Feetwarmers and Henhouse Prowlers. Also appearing is lady guitar abuser Terra Lightfoot whom we saw at Maverick's 2017 Thanksgiving ... she took no prisoners.

Over the weekend at Artdog's second Art in the Barn (the Barn is in Easton Farm Park) we were very taken with Zoë Rubens objet trouvé type pieces. We had a nostalgic flash of pleasure recognising a Brooks bicycle cone spanner in one sculpture:). ArtDog will be showing early next month at ArtSpace Woodbridge.

♫ We were impressed Sunday morning how busy Maverick was. The festival's first ever serious rain on the preceding day had not prompted significant (if any) early leavers. This year the unprogrammed Medicine Show stage has moved ... more here

♫ Friday night at Easton Farm Park the Maverick Thanksgiving Party had sufficient eating and drinking that the Earl Soham Vic ran out about three quarters through the evening. We much enjoyed the Henry Brothers country arrangement of I Can't Stand Mondays, perhaps Cher's Bang Bang next? The excellent Don Gallardo closed his The Last Waltz anniversary set with I Shall Be ...more here

♫ Magnificent weather for another brilliant Maverick producing some wonderful hats and for us the newbs on the Medicine Show stage perhaps the most rewarding, especially Banjo Jen. Our ears pricked at a very lateral keyboard solo from the Cordovas closing the Southern Sounds stage Saturday.. When we pointed out that the lead singer appeared to really fancy himself Rachael's friend asked for my long lens to get a better look and then said If I was that good looking I'd fancy myself.
Sunday a very pleasant conversation with Alan Mutimer and we suggested that Hachfest might return in its original form Hacheston Music Day ... who knows?
