On the 8th December we were lucky enough to be asked to play at Padstow’s Annual Christmas Festival which is now really highly regarded not only in the UK but also throughout Europe. We played a 2-hour set on the bandstand next to the harbour (a stage that the next day was occupied by the Fishermen’s Friends from Port Isaac).
The gig was a real success, with a crowd of a few hundred people all clapping, singing, dancing and laughing along with us. Highlights of the set included a great version of ‘Leaving of Liverpool’, our first ever public performance of ‘Cornish Lads’ which was sung a cappella and finally, to get the crowd ready for Christmas, we got our friend and guest singer Zoe up to sing ‘Fairytale of New York’ with us.
We took a feed from the desk to record the set and also had a couple GoPro cameras and Canon 550d DSLRs on hand as well to film the gig. We’ll try and get a couple of songs uploaded to our YouTube Channel as soon as we get a few spare minutes during the Christmas Holidays.
