just like last year, the kc diary was full to bursting the fortnight after the homegame, so i haven't had time really to think about all that went on over the weekend ... plenty of time to think about it now though. i had a BLAST, largely due to it being way less stressful than previous years. sort of.
alas, i didn't get to hear much of the music. in fact, i only saw two sets in their entirety - hms ginafore's pedal-free set in the cellardyke town hall, which brought wee tears to my red-rimmed eyes, and then to calm me down dougie paul's banjo strumming mellowness at the erskine hall a while later. i've only heard good reports on all the music we put on this homegame, so i'm well proud to have been part of such a stellar line-up.
a hueueueueueueueueueueueueueuge thanks to everyone who bought tickets for this year's event, and who strolled, sat down, stood up, kept quiet, kept patient, smiled, cheered, stayed out of trouble and so on - NOT ONE COMPLAINT this year. all 600 of you are welcome back anytime.
a hueueu....snip....uge thanks to the collective and guests for plugging in, playing, partying, mucking in/out/shaking it all about etc etc, especially those who gave up their weekend to stand on doors and at stalls. much much appreciated.
thanks again to fife council and the local businesses who helped us out this year.
the biggest and hueueue...snip...ueueue...snip...ueuegest thanks goes out to johnny lynch aka the pictish trail. this year's event was pretty much his baby from the off, and for a 20-something to have to deal with all that organisation is an astounding feat. if anybody saw kc and pt stressed out and in tears on the monday afternoon having just waved the quake goodbye ... well, it wasn't us, alright? apparently there was another festival in town that weekend, and it was probably two of those guys.
so, cheers y'all, and roll on next year's homegrown ... ehrr ... homegame!
