Orbis, Gadjo and friends at Glastonbury Assembly Rooms

I got a second chance to see Gadjo on their current tour - at the Assembly Rooms in Glastonbury. Nathan and Emma's Tuesday night Fabulous Furry Folk Club had booked them, and they kindly allowed Orbis Tertius? (me, Keith and Henry) to play a short set. Henry couldn't make it so we ended up appropriating Gadjo's new Argentinian-Italian drummer Jerry. It worked surprisingly well.

Stevie P's Wriggles of Nen played a set. Fraggle asked Jon E. Aris to do a song and he asked me to join him - we played "Live Life", lovely to hear voices singing back from the dark corners of the Rooms.

Gadjo were shockingly good on this occasion. Fraggle was quiet emotional, playing to so many old friends, the mix was great and the band were tight. A long set, total jump-up party vibe, multiple encores, felt like everyone could have just kept going for hours. No need for me to describe it - here's the FFF blog entry about the night.
