s6k Glastonbury Roundup (17) GLASTONBURY ROUNDUP 25 Jun 05

i wanted to put my own personal comments on what i have seen so far in the festival, in particular a couple of acts that most of you wont know but are definately worth a look!

first off, i was simply amazed tonight, in between showing the headlining acts, we had a live acoustic performance by:
this is a guy and a girl with their flamenco & classical guitar, and what they do is interperet classic rock/folk/flamenco stuff and do it in their own style.
this performance was a mixture of stuff, a metallica riff worked into a flamenco rhythm, some Paco de Lucia, and other modern stuff. they were simply amazing, they worked great together, and the speed of the playing was superb. truly a great duo, they have one album out, DEFINATELY check it out!

also, i saw Eliza Carthy performing solo with her accordion the song "colourblind" - it was a great performance, she was in the studio playing it, and couldnt fit her band in! so she just played it herself

the white stripes did some really great stuff, as you will already know if you are a fan, their work is mostly interpretations of classic delta blues tracks. they did a really good version of Son House "death letter blues" - and tracks from their new album. if you didnt like the white stripes before, do check out their new album - its mainly acoustic, with acoustic guitar, marimba, and such. great stuff.

i was also quite impressed with coldplays set, having not been much of a fan before. they even did a tribute to Kylie and sang cant get you out of my head - i dont like kylie, but she was going to headline one of the nights until she found out she had cancer. so this was nice.

im keeping my eyes peeled for more good stuff and will report back here.

to finish, there was a video about 10 mins long about john peel - very moving, and everyone has a huge respect for him, which is the way it should be.

please add your own stuff youve liked
