If, like me, you have spent the last two days despairing at the results of the general election, it may help to remember that there are some people in this world who do think like you do.
You’re likely to find a fair few of them next weekend (15-17th May 2015) at the Wood Festival in deepest Oxfordshire. 3 nights and 2 days of folkish music, workshops and communing with nature with a thousand other people.
I’ve been involved every year except 2014 and I am delighted to be returning. It has always provided me with a warm feeling of community and joint endeavour where everyone is involved in making or playing or doing, not just a passive audience member. I’ll be leading singing workshops on Saturday evening (lullabies) and Sunday morning (world harmony) and performing a solo set Sunday afternoon, previewing songs from my forthcoming album. (I’ve been saying ‘forthcoming’ for 5 years but I promise you that it is on it’s way – it may be taking the B roads but it will get here soon!)
For more info on other acts performing (Including Tunng) and on the vast array of workshops (hula-hooping to samba to felt-making) and how to buy tickets etc, go to www.woodfestival.com
Hope to see you there!
