It feels like weeks since I was at Camp Bestival, but despite having been to Spain in between there are still a couple of acts that have stuck in my mind.
The wonderful thing about festivals is that you get to listen to all kinds of new music that you wouldn’t normally see, and this opens you up to all kinds of fun new experiences. One thing I particularly love about live music, and what draws me to the smaller stages to watch less well known acts, is being able to actually get up close and watch the musicians actually playing their instruments – you get to see the passion and concentration in their faces, individual muscles straining.
Anyway, enough of my babbling, here are my two favourite acts from Camp Bestival – my ones to watch. You should definitely check them out:
What the programme says – this young singer-song writer has already supported Seth Lakeman on tour and is set for big things.
What I say – absolutely adorable, you just wanted to hug him. It was the Seth link that drew me in. Bee had the best day of her life with Seth at Camp Bestival just a few years ago.
What the programme says – having honed their craft from an early age busking in Dublin, brothers Alfie and Harry are poised for mahoosiveness.
What I say – an engaging and energetic stage presence plus beautiful Simon and Garfunkel style crooning.
