The Friday of this years festival started with one of my highlights of 2016 and another rock/blues set with plenty of Doors references by the Bombardiers with a new look line up but still rocking up a storm with the likes of ‘Back Door Man' and Stevie Ray Vaughan's ‘Pride and Joy'.
Also on the bill we had melodic indie rock a plenty from The Rushmore, the wonderful songwriting and playing of original Coventry band (and festival regulars) The Session and a set mixing covers of indie, punk and rock classics by Got It Covered.
The middle part of the evenings entertainment was a fabulous display of folk with a touch of celtic rock and plenty of top fiddle playing (along with a wide variety of instruments on display) by the Band of Rack and Ruin.
The opening day of the festival finished with firstly the glam rock fun and upbeat vibe of the colourful Dead Frequency and to close the night headliners The Firm (looking as smart as always) one of the best 60's/70's cover bands around made sure the audience rocked the night away with the likes of ‘Substitute', ‘I Can Hear The Grass Grow' and ‘Hollywood Nights'.
Another wonderful Napton Festival Friday and back soon with a few words and pics from the Saturday.
