Members of A Month Of Sundays were very pleased with their performance at Hay on Wye `fair in the square` festival on Bank Holiday Monday .

A glorious sunny day saw five bands performing to a packed town square in this curious and intriguing little town in Wales, a town heaving with visitors from all over the World to celebrate the annual , now World famous Hay festival.

 

 

The festival itself is now on the fringe of the town but Hay gears up in response and provides a myriad of diversion for those on the hunt for Literature, the arts, photography, mystery, music, suspense or just good fish and chips.

The pubs are packed to the rafters and there is a five hundred yard long queue in evidence for organic ice cream of the goat variety.

The odd thing is that nobody seems to mind waiting, it seems all are given to taking on board the fact that its just part of it and appear resigned to just get on with it and do their waiting with a cheerful disposition.

It is in this atmosphere that relatively new outfit A Month of Sundays take to the stage, somewhat late to perform a one hour long set of folkiebluesiejazzie kinda stuff for the festival goers and a good few local folks too. It has to be acknowledged too, that a fair contingent of Ledbury people made the journey and AMOS would like to thank those who bothered to make the trip.

Running through a reportoire of music from the Beatles and Loudon Wainwright to Joe Walsh the Drifters and Neil Young the band finished with the increasingly popular version of Whiskey in the jar, a kind of Thin Lizzy meets the Pogues and Gong sort of rendition, quite refreshing on a hot bank holiday afternoon in this extraordinary little town in Wales.

A Month of Sundays are Eric Porter guitars/vocals, Marcus Morris/mandolin, Adrian Whiles/percussion and NickTrigg guitars/vocals. Enquiries for gigs etc on  0793 888 9976
