Greenbelt
st_martin_a


Can't wait til Sunday. I'm taking my eldest son to the Greenbelt Festival. For my Russian and American friends and maybe even some of my British ones, it's a music festival with a Christian focus. It used to draw crowds of about 30 000 and some big names have played there like U2. It always has a real variety of acts and the vast majority are total quality. It was where I heard Julie Miller for the first time and I totally fell in love with her. She had recently come out of a mental hospital and she did this brilliant version of 'My Psychiatrist'. Absolute legend.
Anyway the Proclaimers are playing this year - the Scottish brothers with the National Health specs. I've got my Scottish hat and wig ready - it's gonna be class.

and Ukranian and African! how could I forget : )

That sounds like a lot of fun! I hope you have a great time.

I'm sad because I'm not going this year! I've been every year since the mid 80's but I'm not able to get this year. I'm still hoping I may get down there for a day though.

The 80`s - the golden era of Greenbelt for me - Philip Bailey, Denice Williams, Deacon Blue, The Alarm, Jessy Dixon (!). Great times. Do you remember the punk (I think he called himself Gizzard Puke) who used to turn up at the main-stage and perform one song with his guitar and then leave? The compares were great (was Stuart Henderson one of them?). I haven't been for a good few years to I'm really looking forward to it. I'm just going down for the Sunday but will hopefully go for the whole weekend next year.

Thanks Mumi. It should be good!
