"Everbody put your legs in the air for Blackberry Wood!" And that's what everybody did as can be seen from Shakeypix's photograph.

Blackberry Wood  come all the way from Canadee - I – O  and were introduced to me some years ago by Bella who said they were looking for a gig in a few weeks. Together we booked The Green Dragon and put the word out. It was one of the most joyous Wild Hare nights ever, everybody seemed so up for it.

Well what's not to like about a band of dressed-up travellin' gypsy party musicians who peddle a bohemian beat of wildly-exciting, high-powered acoustic dance music? The band  mix original tunes with some brilliantly chosen and unexpected covers and play them with such joy that they create an instant festival vibe and everyone dances.

Patti Smith - True to the Trail

Looking forward to the live stream event by Patti Smith at 3pm EST / New York time today (ticket details here). I didn't have much pre-planned this year (just as well hey?) but had bought tickets for one of her scheduled Albert Hall shows and so this is a stop-gap.

This photo was taken in July 2014 when I tracked her down after spotting a concert poster in Tromso, Norway. I was in town with some colleagues to join the Greenpeace Esperanza for an expedition to Svalbard
