Who would have thought that Bursledon would have it's very own music festival? Well it does and it was great event with a great line up of musicians playing to a packed village hall throughout the day and evening.
Below playing in the afternoon singer songwriter Dlugokecki who also brought this young kids along, presumably to make sure there was a keen audience, which was there was in any case. CD's were on offer for the cost of a donation to Naomi House charity, of which we have one, it's very good.
Joseph has been paying guitar for just over a year now, so we though it would be a great opportunity to see some live bands and it was, he really liked the guitar playing, especially local blues musician Pete Harris and his song about the I Phone Blues "put down that iphone and pay some attention to me.e.e.."
Above the Southampton Ukulele Jam were frankly brilliant, loads of audience participation, playing some interesting arrangements of some favourites including - Just Can't get Enough, Come Up and See ME (Make Me Smile). Joseph came home asking if could have a ukulele.
There may or may not have been some celebrities playing and Elvis Costello may or may not have been playing with the Ukulele Jam.
Put in in you diary for next year.
