Just back from the Relentless Boardmasters festival in Newquay, Cornwall and had a lot of fun! Boardmasters is held on a stunning cliff top location over looking Watergate Bay where 12,500 people attend the South West’s biggest live music event. Dave and I played on the view stage, which is their new acoustic stage.

Good old English weather threatened to pour down until an hour before we played but then brightened up a little bit. Not quite the scorching hot day we were hoping for but lots of lovely people still came to see us and support us!

Being non drinkers and non caffeine intakers we didn’t partake in the drinking of any Relentless drinks or vodka on offer but found a very cute little tent with free red current tea which was put-on by a lady who lives in Spain and self teaches her 3 kids in a house without an electricity generator which she has done for 15 years! She was very cool!

For the rest of the evening we were loving the sets from Plan B, Xavier Rudd, Seasick Steve and Newton Faulkner.

The beaches are gorgeous in Newquay so we made the most of it the following day by making sure to do some surfing with the Quiksilver surfing school and walking through the more quiet secluded beaches-avoiding the nuts magazine Bikini contests and the like where on 2 occasions I saw pink liquid coming out of some poor guys mouth! Oh the joys of alcohol- not!

This weekend we met some really lovely people at this festival. So thanks to Katy for booking us, those on Facebook who came along to support me! Really appreciate it!! Hope you had an amazing time! Thank you to Ady Webb for the brilliant photos of us playing the gig and Jen White for the videoing and Stacey for recommending them to me. Video/audio to follow asap. Bye for now,

Lots of love,
