HENLEY MUSIC FESTIVAL 2018 - MY BLINK AND YOU'LL MISS IT VISITReview
Afraid to say the weather for my proposed Sunday visit to this years event in the beautiful town of Henley-In-Arden put me off but I did get over to The Nags Head (one of several festival venues) for a flying visit on the Monday afternoon to catch a couple of acts.
First up an acoustic set by Josh Kemp with well played and chosen covers which mixed the genres well and highlights included ‘Suspicious Minds', ‘Light My Fire' and ‘Chasing Cars' and with his friendly stage manner and impressive guitar work and vocals this was a Sunday lunchtime treat.
Next and unfortunately for me last was The Trevor Burtonless Band with a rocking, full on electric set which included Southern rock, and blues numbers among the styles with standouts pumped up versions of the classic ‘Crossroads', JJ Cale/ Skynyrd's ‘They Call Me The Breeze' and Neil Young juggernaut 'Like A Hurricane'.
A top quality rocking four piece (joined later by a female vocalist on ‘Sweet Home Alabama) and the drummer in particular was a real live wire and a music photographers dream to shoot.
A brief visit but looks like it was a quality event as usual and hope to catch a bit more next year.
