Saturday at this years beer festival at the Plough and Harrow in Whitnash had on offer along with the usual well chosen selection of real ales and ciders a wealth of musical entertainment to add to proceedings.

For my visit which was early - from festival opening time until around 5.30 the music was top draw and supplied by five youthful local singer/songwriters of real quality.

On for me the more modern side we had Rosie Samaras (who like most of the other performers mixed originals with well chosen covers) whose set included an excellent version of Beyonce's ‘Crazy In Love' and a powerful set by Joe Dolman who also sorted out the sound for the day.

With more of a folky feel we had fine sets by Hannah Woof which included wonderful original ‘Scars' and Amy J who in her set included quality renditions of two Neil Diamond penned numbers ‘Sweet Caroline' and The Monkee's ‘I'm A Believer'.

Finally Paris Georgia gave us a good slice of her warming country/rock sounds including a countryfied ‘Sweet Child O' Mine' and emotion packed original ‘Gemima'.

Quality throughout with 5 exceptional vocalists and song/writers again showcasing the enormous wealth of our local musical talent.
