    Fri 21 May – Shepley Spring Festival

    Yes, I went to see Seth Lakeman again. We did have a bit of a problem with finding the venue, due to the lack of sign-posting, but that bothered my mother infinitely more than it did me. When I go to a festival, I expect to have to walk around looking for stuff.

    There were three acts on before him: two of those I didn't really like or pay much attention to -- they were competent musicians, but I didn't get into it. Saltfishforty were really really good, though, and they got a well-deserved encore.

    Seth Lakeman was the main attraction, though, of course. He was really good, even with Ben Nichols absent. Energetic and fun. Louder than at the other gigs I've been to lately, I think, which I'm not complaining about.
