Linton Music Festival 2010
Sunday

Sunday saw Watermelon Slim refused entry to our country because of Immigration Laws (Should he have claimed asylum?). And so the star of the afternoon was not to be. Which brought about an extended set from Peter Green, He can still play, his voice isn't so strong and he managed the harp. Though showing some lapses of concentration he was so much better than with the Splinter group. The crowd were brought to a crescendo when The Green Manalishi ensued bringing everyone to their feet and there they stayed till the end and through an encore. Peter Green is back with a mix of the old, the new and a lot of traditional blues. Oh yes, he still does Albatross much to the crowd's delight!

A real treat was to follow, Mike Sanchez filled in more of Watermelon Slim's lost time, and with the most respect to Mike I have never really been enthused with his "Swing" thing but after this solo act I am most impressed. He played Boogie Woogie Piano, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, The Big Bopper - A most wonderful version of TE-NI-NEE-NI-NU. Joined on stage by The Seatsniffers for one more number before taking a well earned rest. I have to say at this time there was more dancing going on than at any other time in the festival. Such is the power of "Rock N Roll". As for The Seatsniffers, what a great act, they continued in the same vein up-tempo "R-n-B" and the dancing carried on. Mike rejoined them for a further set and carried on where he left off. Ruby Turner finished the evening with a masterful Soul session.
