Wilko Johnson at the Cottingham Folk Festival.

At least he had all those extra years!!

Opher's World

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.

Great stuff.
