Excited to play 2 festivals last weekend. First up was the lovely boutique music and poetry festival Gypsy In The Field which was absolutely lovely with a great friendly vibe. Then on Sunday it was Homegrown Music Festival, a great new festival supporting talented artists in the Eastern region. Again, everyone was so welcoming and up for a fun time. Roll on next summer!
