Farm is just such a great place! It is one of
those places I really enjoy visiting. Everybody I have ever
met there has been absolutely genuine and friendly. Whether
you go to sample the cider in the cider cellar, celebrate
the Wassail on Twelfth Night or go to enjoy a classical
music performance or blues party it is just so relaxing.
Whatever your reason for going, once discovered, you will
want to keep going back!
Tina was working on Wednesday, so I went alone to Broome
into the barn was like stepping into a different world from
the one I had experienced over the past week or two. I was
amongst one large family of real friends again. I took some
photos, shot some film and drank one glass of excellent
cider, enjoying some good company and music before collecting
Tina from work.
Lovell's 'Ensemble' were playing when I first arrived and
I managed to catch their last song on video. That film,
which is a little shaky as I rushed to get the camera out
in time to catch it and had not had chance to get myself
comfortably seated, can be seen on the next page. Toby's
band were brilliant and I wish I had caught more of their
act. Wanting to make sure that Kent Duchaine was happy with
me photographing and filming him, I sought him out before
he began his act and asked. He was only too happy with both
and posed for the photo below, with 'Leadbessie' his 73
year old steel guitar before starting his show.
left at a little after 11 pm and headed for the White Lion,
strolled in all innocent like and ordered a coffee, but
Tina had already heard that I had been at the 'Blues Party'.
Why bother with an on-line news service when the word travels
that fast without it? Thank you to Mike, Phil, Toby's band,
Kent Duchaine and everybody else who was there. It was a
great evening. I really enjoyed your company!
