THE morning’s spent at the old mill catching up with some work then we drive to the festival site for lunch with the FestivalBAR team and folks building the ‘festival village’.
After a nice two-hour lunch we tale a trip to Chinon to pick up some stuff…we want to get a gift for Françoise – Dominique’s mum – who’s been our hostess at the old mill.
Back at the mill, we get some more work done then make our way to a venue across the road for the festival site for tonight’s gig – a private show for the festival team, volunteers, sponsors, industry folks and other esteemed guests. The PA is set up when we get there and load in and sound checks go smoothly.
There’s canapes and bubbly, then festival association president Christian and ‘boss’ Eric say a few words before I play a couple of 45-minute sets. We have a blast 🙂
Once done, we head backstage at the festival site for a late dinner, then back to the old mill….
