At least he had all those extra years!!
It certainly stretches the definition of Folk when the likes of Wilko Johnson, with his quirky R&B Pub Rock, and Chantelle McGregor, and her Power-Blues, are on the bill.
Wilko, ably supported by the magician on bass Norman Watt-Roy and the superb percussion of Dylan Howe, gave his usual powerful performance. We had it all – the intense stares, lunges across the stage, robotic movements, machine gun sprays and even the playing behind the head.
The set was a bit looser than normal with a lot of prolonged improvisation.
The crowd loved it and the old favourites were met with cheers – Roxette getting the loudest of all.
So good to see him looking well and touring after his pancreatic cancer.
