Doesn't time fly when you're allowed inside!
Aside from the relentlessness of the weather (saved by the bell over the bank holiday weekend!) May was a good month for us here at Magpie HQ. We kicked things off with a wonderful weekend of rehearsals and a cheeky pint or two, before we headed off to the wonderful Holmfirth Festival of Folk!
We had a fabulous time playing to a real-life audience, even if you weren't in the room! Our friends Northern Cowboys did a wonderful job of the live-stream, far more professional than certain other festivals, not naming any names (*cough* Glastonbury)!
The whole festival is still available to watch online and it's a brilliant line-up so make sure you don't miss out (we're on at 1 hour 13 minutes)!
In other exciting news, earlier this month, we announced 3 incredible additions to our line-up at The Magpies Festival in August. Katie Spencer, Tom Moore & Archie Moss and Roswell will be joining Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra, Blair Dunlop, Katherine Priddy and Dan Webster at Sutton Park in York!
We've been overwhelmed by the incredibly positive response we've had to the festival so far, so a huge, huge thank you to all of you who have bought a ticket. If you haven't got yours yet, don't miss out!
We're also on the look-out for volunteers to join the Magpie team of stewards at the festival, in exchange for a free ticket, drinks voucher and (optional!) camping. If you're interested in getting involved or know anyone who is, find out more here and spread the word. We hope to see you there!
Have a wonderful month!
Until next time,
