What I saw and one word for my impression based upon that performance:

Chris While & Julie Matthews: Splendid

Mary Gauthier: Splendid

Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders: poor

Nancy Kerr & James Fagan: Excellent

The Lancashire Hotpots: poor

Tom Kitching & Gren Bartley: Impressive

King Creosote: Boring

The Spooky Mens Chorale: Stunning

Oysterband: OYSTERBAND!!!!

Boo Hewerdine: Excellent

Jez Lowe & The Bad Pennies: Splendid

Elbow Jane: so-so

Annabelle Chvostek: Boring

Barbara Dickson: Trouper!

Peatbog Faeries: Repetitive

I missed a lot of others through choice or circumstance. It was a rerr wee festival overall. very well run and not overpriced.

I'll be back.

They were the Friday night dance band.  I bounced up and down goodstyle along with everyone else.  The sound was a bit 'muddy' but and so the vocals weren't as precise as I've come to expect from them. Because they were playing for dancing it didn't matter too much and, as usual, there were enough people in the crowd quite happy to 'sing' at the top of their lungs every word of every song.

And I expect to hear that you've managed to hold another conversation with John Jones...... angel4

If you're having to use a jack you should see a doctor.

Little dae ye's know, Steve and Red.  

The festival was good, but what lifted it into the stratosphere was the company of friends...we laughed, and we sung and we got more than a little pissed together, disagreed marginally on some of the acts, and agreed wholeheartedly on the last drink of the weekend what a fantastic time we all had (we've even got a photo)....everything you need to make a fantastic weekend...

You wouldn't want to be an 8 on the Glasgow Coma Scale.
