I’ll let the photos do the talking today. Both bands were on top form… the weather might have been grey, but the music was hot, and the reception from a large audience was warm and enthusiastic!
DYJO have been playing at the excellent Dart Music Festival for many years, and it’s always an immense pleasure. Of course, the festival itself is extraordinary – the town is absolutely full of music in every corner, from the Friday night to the Sunday evening, and every stage is free (the £80,000 cost of the festival is covered through voluntary donations and fundraising).
And somehow, Dartmouth, and the lovely Flavel Arts Centre always brings out the best of DYJO to an ever-appreciative audience. And so it was yesterday. DYJO2 opened with a really tight 50-minute set, with so many highlights, both in the ensemble playing and in great solos from around the band. After the interval, DYJO1 pulled out all the stops with a barnstorming set that sent the audience away with their feet tapping and smiles on their faces!
If you are at the Devon County Show next Saturday (16 May 2019), both bands will be appearing in The Parasol from 2.30pm – we hope to see you there!
