Who else are you excited to see at Beverley?
Henry Priestman and Edwina Hayes.

What’s your best festival memory?
Chatting to Nanci Griffith back stage at Cambridge Folk Festival – and her bursting into an Edwina Hayes song when her name was mentioned.

What are your festival essentials?

Good music, food/drink but essentially the atmosphere. Oh, and wellies.

How does playing a festival differ from playing your own gig?
Although some of those in front of you might be aware of your music it’s fantastic to share it with a mixed festival audience – usually all age groups.

What’s your favourite part of playing a festival?

Riding on the feelgood factor that is usually in the air. It’s all about being among like-minded people just enjoying music.
