And here are Rich’s photos of Jackson D and Hombre and a couple of us he took during Jeff’s Underneath the Underground solo. You may notice that there is a Grassroots banner on the stage. There may have been some time travelling going on.

Celtarabia at Rainbow Summer Camp

A great band!! Some great photos!! Dig the masks and hurdy gurdy!

Loudhailer UK

The last of a terrific set of summer festival gigs with Celtarabia was at the Rainbow Summer Camp in Gloucestershire, a lovely peaceful gathering, reminiscent of the free festivals of yore. Celtarabia starred at the festival’s grand Masked Ball, what a marvellous experience. Superb dancing throughout the night and a fantastic vibe made for a brilliant time. Special thanks to sound engineer Joe who showed me his lovely vintage fretless Fender Jazz Bass. It was so cool I played it for most of the set. Cheers Joe!

Rich’s galleries of photos show what a spectacular night it was, the first gallery of Celtarabia, and the second is the rest of the day:  

Preparations for the Masked Ball… 

Celtarabia at the Green Gathering were:

Quentin Budworth – Hurdy Gurdy

Aah, that familiar mixture of aromas; Tolex, Kevlar, engine oil, curry.
She opened her eyes after what seemed like an age and hungrily took in her surroundings. The bridge of the Leco, her starcruiser; it seemed like an age since she and her crew had stood in this spot.

Reconnected to the Source, Ricardo the Astral Bard had beamed them back on board from the Plains of Kardomah before Bombardier Walker had to…
