has been an awful lot to cover this week and, with the whole
of Saturday and Sunday being taken up by the White Lion
Festival in one way or another plus a couple of 'family
to the airport' and 'getting the car serviced' issues taking
up time, I lost three days and have not had a lot of time
to prepare the issue.
are a lot of photographs this week, so I have split it into
five pages, some of which may take a time to load if you
do not have broadband. Apologies for that.
I have also had to leave out one or two of the events I
went along to photograph - sorry about that also - I will
try to include them next week.
hope there are not too many errors and that you enjoy reading
/ viewing. My brain is overworked, tired and has only been
firing on three cylinders for the past two weeks. As my
proof reader, Tina is at work there will probably be plenty
of mistakes. My favourite event this week was Will Killeen
at the festival. There is a 10 minute film of Will at the
gig below. It is just an extract from the hour of footage
I took but if you don't look at anything else, you must
try and watch that. That man is a brilliant guitarist! Miln
& James were also great and there is a similar length
film of their performance for readers to watch.
WNTV: A Great Weekend at the White
Lion Real Ale & Cider Festival!
first Real Ale and Cider Festival held at The White Lion
Inn over the weekend, 24th June was a huge success! The
majority of the event took place in brilliant sunshine
and when rain did eventually stop play outside, late on
Sunday afternoon, the live music continued inside. Everybody
at the event commented that they had a great time, most
sampling one or two of (and some even all of) of the guest
ales and ciders that were available whilst listening to
some great, live entertainment.
Following the festival's success, Dave and Jacqui, landlord
and landlady of the inn are looking forward to holding
a similar event next year. The date of the event will
be announced here as soon as arrangements have been made.
performers, Miln & James, Jocelyn, Josie and Stevie,
Tina and Will Killeen can be seen below, along with some
WNTV footage of the fantastic Miln & James and Will
Killeen. Pete Miln and Dan James are great folk musicians
and Will Killeen has to be one of the best blues guitarists
in the country! He just has to be seen to be believed
and you can do that here. After his performance, Will
was not entirely happy with himself because he struggled
having broken a fingernail a few days prior to the event.
The video coverage is was shot with that broken fingernail
- you should see him with all ten!!! Click the links below

to repeat this one for those who have already seen it but
I published it last week, after having previously announced
that I would not be running an issue of Wyenot News. For
obvious reasons, I want to get it seen by the maximum amount
of local readers.
