The Festival has been running for several years now and is gaining its place as a fixture on the Headington calendar – right up there with the open gardens (this week and next). All credit to Headington Action for being the driving force behind this.
A children’s brass ensemble performed today, to general admiration all round. They were great little performers ably lead by their conductor who wore a general, restrained air of anxiety right up to the final, warbling note. A tremendous achievement …
Mama Rosin (Cajun/Zydeco music from Switzerland) at the Brasenose Arms, Cropredy, 28 January
Not quite Fred’s Lounge in Mamou, Louisiana, but arguably the next best thing on a January night in Oxfordshire.
And the next night we saw Richard Thompson at Warwick Arts Centre, part of the Dream Attic tour.
What a star.
Plenty of refreshments down by the old US Mint
