Festival season is well and truly under-way and we already have two trips under our belts with many more to come. At the start of May we headed waaaaaaaaaay up North to the Shetland Folk Festival where we spent the most amazing weekend with 14 other visiting bands playing many gigs around Lerwick and the odd excursion into the wild. We love this photo of us on stage at the Mareel in Lerwick taken by Lieve B:
We came home shattered, partly due to the gigs & parties, partly due to the relentless wind ... but had a great time and highly recommend you all pay it a visit someday ... we even saw Otters and Seals next to the local Tesco! Mad!
Moving forward, we are really looking forward to playing at the Buckle & Boots festival for the first time next Sunday, with some great UK and US bands we're hoping to see as well as our own slot.
