Well Summer is here….
Rain, Sun, Rain, Sun, But I don’t mind because it feels like home to me. I don’t mind the rain every now and then, It makes the sunshine more special. So i hit The Temple House Festival in Sligo as I was playing with the amazing http://www.myspace.com/redbrickhouse and it was a total washout! The gig was great but the attendance was poor for most bands.I heard it was an increase in ticket price’s, the weather, Sea Sessions had a better line up, who knows but I think people who didn’t attend lost out big time! What a great festival. There was some amazing music, a beautiful arts trail and the grounds alone ooze history:
There was a medevial/viking village, Children’s activite’s, poetry, arabian dancing, art works/piece’s and all hidden in the woods! It was a real treat. I had heard about temple house and did a little reading after the second night of the festival when I got home to a comfy bed! (cheater)!
So apart from a great music festival and beautiful art this was all on the site of a Knights Templar Ruin, Such History and you can feel it on the grounds,also the sam family The Perceval’s have owned and maintained this beautiful site, Do read up on this, Im hopoing to book a room in the fab Georgian house for the night : http://www.templehouse.ie/
I’ll be back next with new’s of my first free downloadable single, so excited…….
