Larma Tree

I had a fab time away at the Larma Tree Festival at the weekend despite the rotten weather...yes wellies again! I just love discovering new quality music there and enjoying a few old favourites like The Dodge Brothers and the Fat 45 s. The first is a quality skiffle band with Mark Kermode behind the double bass. They delivered a thumping session of boogie,skiffle,country and blues on the beautiful garden stage.  The Fat 45 s are friends from Brighton , a 11 piece big band playing music from the 40 s and 50 s. They got the big top a rocking on the friday night, it was good to get a proper dance in!
It really is a quality festival and the comedy tent was as excellent as always delivering names like Russel Kane and Arther Smith. One last gush for my new found band, Gabby Young and the Other Animals....her voice was sublime and stage presence wonderful...ah a real treat!

New Stockists

One of the great things about finding new stockists for our knicker kits is discovering all the like minded people out there. Like 'Kit' of Falmouth, already a lovely shop but soon to get even better as they open a new shop  stocking vintage  fabric and design dresses, our lovely knicker kits and all matter of haberdashery for the crafty folk of Falmouth. We are also very excited about the future possibilities collaborations such as knicker workshops and  parties....
Why not pay it  a visit if you are down in Cornwall this summer the new shop's launch is due to coincide  with Falmouth week so it's all hands on deck..Good Luck Kit!
Ps. We love your visual blog too!

Glastonbury and the Village Disco

It was that time of year again for a dose of  midsummer madness with the world famous Village Disco boys and girls! Dispite the rain pouring over the crowd and most the stage people still gathered on friday night. The disco anti cool Dads spun their finest tunes and had everyone doing everything from disco dancing, moshing to air guitaring all with alot of smiles! Saturday night it went off! This time we were the farmers and their wives. I had so much fun. We did one other gig on the sunday afternoon very different in the the wonderful sushine. We were the Pilton Plum Coats and led the sunday afternoon exercises and games.

I did manage to get to see some of the festival although my enthusiasm for sliding about in the mud did hamper my efforts....i had very little! BBKing was my high light along with looking at all the wonderful art in the shangri la fields.
