A very kind review courtesy of The Northern Line…
“As we wake on Saturday the first thing that hits us is the sun!!! Yes, we had forgotten he even existed but today his hat was on and we could hear him whistling hip hip hip hurray as we checked out the bacon and egg butties. First up on the main stage was “Washington Irving”. Now last year we gave the Deer Shed “Festival of the Year”. We made Washington Irving “Band of the Year.” Todays performance was a match made in heaven. Despite the early start and the hangover they were fantastic. This isn’t just my biased opinion but also that of everyone I spoke to at the festival. They should be huge. Despite only having released one of the songs they played; Abbey Gallop; and despite most in attendance never having heard of them they went down a storm. Whiskies were bought, jigs were danced and everyone went away vowing to see them again. When I was young I used to have a favourite band or artist. It began with Buddy Holly in 1978, I know, I know, punk was at its height and I was into Buddy Holly!!! Then I discovered The Police, then The Jam. Then The Smiths blew me away. As I got older it seemed a bit childish to have a favourite band. A bands name to write on your satchel, a band to care about, a band to tell your friends about but, but, I still do have favourite bands. And at the moment Washington Irving are that band. I love them. And before long you will too.”
