Gig Night

Fishguard, Wales 2016

The last night of the Aber Jazz festival in Fishguard and first on stage were a Carmarthen band called The Chalk Lines who blasted the audience with high energy Ska. I moved to the front where most of the action was but suddenly got preoccupied by a guy waiting by the entrance clad in a complete suit of armour. He turned out to be the cellist of the next band. In fact all of the second band wore fancy dress and somehow didn’t quite live up musically to their predocessors adhering to the principle that the impact of stage costumes is usually inversely proportional to the quality of the sound. Shame.
