The weather forecast for the very first Mold Blues and Soul Festival wasn’t great but I didn’t care – a gig in the town where my husband and I grew up was so exciting and it meant that we would be spending a weekend with our family and friends.
Saturday morning came and the weather was atrocious – the rain was heavy and the wind was blowing a gale… We decided that family, including our boys, should probably stay home, warm and dry and so just Mr sixdegrees and I headed off.
The event was really well organised – thanks to a fantastic group of volunteers – and once we had arrived and signed in we were given our VIP wrist bands
then whisked off to the green room for refreshments. The rest of the band arrived and we were all chatting away when the photographer from the newspaper arrived for the official photo shoot. The rest of us stayed behind to carry on chatting and catching up – I love this band so much, they are all so friendly and the support from family and good friends is amazing, it’s always such a wonderful atmosphere.
As Indio’s Dream took to the stage, the rain stopped, the clouds parted and the sun shone…
Their set was, as always, flawless. The sound carried beautifully in the sunshine, Emma sounded and looked as beautiful as ever and everyone on stage were clearly having the time of their lives. The crowds were really receptive with people dancing and cheering too.
When the band finished, the crowd showed their appreciation and we all sat together, in the sun, enjoying the entertainment on offer…
Thanks to the organisers, volunteers, caterers, for a fabulous weekend, all your efforts are very much appreciated!
