 Oooh, also, I totally forgot, Cara and I went to Folk by the Oak the other weekend - her birthday present to me! It was such good fun, it's only a tiny one-day festival but there was lots going on, plus it was a lovely, sunny day. Music-wise, Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo really grabbed me, as did Cara Dillon, and the Ukuleke Orchestra were lots of fun too. I have to say, I wasn't that impressed by Show of Hands - the music was good but they opened with three unbelievably cynical and miserable songs and I lost patience with it a bit.

On the whole the music was great, but possibly the nicest thing about the day was that we didn't have to do anything apart from turn up and lie around in a field listening to music, reading, snoozing and occasionally getting up for chips and ice cream. We spend so many weekends rushing around doing All The Things, it was really good to have some real down time. (Plus the last couple of years we've been to Cambridge Folk Fest, and although it's always good we spend more time dashing between stages and trying to figure out where we can sit, whereas FbtO was much easier in that respect because it's that much smaller.)
