Patricia and I recently attended and thoroughly enjoyed this incredible annual FREE festival on Tooting Common, which was promoted by ‘The Breathing Room’.
As songwriters ourselves, it was great to hear live bands performing virtually all new and original songs. A really eclectic range of styles, ranging from Blues, Rock, Country, Folk and even Techno.
Among the many superb performers was the Living Legend Wiz Jones who influenced the guitar styles of both Eric Clapton and Rolling Stone Keith Richards among others. Our own favourites of the day were The “Nial Kelly Band” from Ulster and the young male/female duo “Whom By Fire” whose original songs were simply breath taking.
There was also excellent food of all types (Caribbean, Mexican, Italian etc etc) available at reasonable prices, not to the mention real ale and cocktails – plus the weather was hot.
We can’t wait for next year!
