We had a fabulous afternoon at Hundred Records’ first Beggars Fair, with four very different performances.
First up was ex-music journalist Martin James, now a professor of journalism, who read from his new book about Dave Grohl and also provided some frankly scary stories about Iggy Pop and Ice-T, among others.
Tom Lowman then got the music off to a great start, and the temperature rising, along with his talented band. He was followed by Hundred Records favourites A Formal Horse, complete with New Improved Backdrop!
The day was finished off by Vicki Musselwhite, who gave us a sadly curtailed set (we hit closing time too soon!) which really showcased her mature songwriting and her astonishing voice.
Huge thanks to all the artists who performed for us, and to everyone who came to listen to them. Roll on the next Beggars Fair!
