Readifolk has always been a great supporter of Na-Mara’s music and it was lovely to be returning to perform at the club once more. After two long days of driving at the end of the previous week, we'd both been able to rest up for a while and were raring to go again. At only an hour's drive away, it felt as though we were visiting near neighbours. We were certainly visiting good friends.
Refreshed from a great night's sleep in quiet and comfortable surroundings, we had a lovely breakfast chat with our host and Bideford Folk Club committee member, Alison, at her splendid B&B.
We knew we were in for some glorious weather when we set off mid-morning for our long trip from St Albans down to north Devon to perform for our first ever time at the Bideford Folk Club.
Rob and I got our June/July series of gigs off to a splendid start on the afternoon of Sunday 5th June with a relaxed trip to perform at the Richard Jefferies Museum in Coate, near Swindon.
