We left sunny Stroud at midday. The car was packed full of tents, sleeping bags and guitars and we were all ready to go. I woke up on Friday morning with a dreadful cold and so the idea of sitting in a car for 5 and a half hours was not one I took lightly. I drove up with my older brother Matthias and the 5 hour journey that we expected turned into an 8 hour trip! It took for what felt like forever and as we passed the sign for Cumbria in the last hour of daylight we were relieved. The final hour of the journey was just beautiful. The sun was setting over the rolling mountains and the reflection of the clouds glistened on the lake.

I woke up to an amazing sight. I hadn't realised that we were surrounded by hills in the low light we had when we arrived and so it was quite a shock walking out of the tent, completely unaware of what you were going to face. Just spectacular.
I played my set at mid-day and hung around for a while to watch some other acts and Firewood Island from Bristol were really great!:)

A fab weekend overall and a great end to the festival season!
Next up I'm off to Cheltenham with Tholy for the Fairview convention and then bring on the recording of the next album..
