What an amazing time I had at Riba Rocks, so much fun. I was also pleased with the photos I took and fortunately everyone else was too, so phewf on that part. If you're reading this and don't know about Riba Rocks, it's my pals, Sarah and Chris', tiny eco music festival located in their little valley near Riba-Roja D'Ebre in Catalonia, Spain. Such lovely people; met old friends and made new ones. Sarah and Chris invited me over to flaunt my photography skills by documenting the festival. I did my best and got what I thought a good flavour of the festival. There's always things you end up missing but all to work towards for next year! Such diverse music too from local and UK bands and artists. From solo guitar singer-songwriters with the likes of Carrianne Hayden, Lilac Sheer, Nic Bennett, Adrià Cid (who also makes ceramics!) and Ali Ingle; folk with Troubadour's Garden; indie with the new kids on the block Run Tiger Run, piano and vocals with Maud the Moth; bit of prog from Hysterical Injury; noisy punk with a touch of ukulele from The Cecilias; nu-metal from local band Flatware and electronica from The Horn The Hunt. After midnight the DJs took over playing House late in to the night. Phewf, think I got everyone there.
There's a little gallery on the Riba Rocks website and I've put together a few here but will put more pictures up soon.
Ooh, it was wet....again. Yes, it was raining in Buchanan Street when WOSUP were doing our Big Busk for Alzheimers Scotland this morning. However, we ploughed on and did ourselves proud. The lovely Glasgow shoppers seemed to appreciate our gusto performance by depositing lots of pennies in our buckets as well as the other fabulous buskers. Great time had if a little (big bit) soggy. Rounded off the afternoon with coffee and pie at Dino's. Lovely.
