"What about Home Service" ? says Bonzo3legs.

ABSOLUTELY TOP-CLASS!
They got 2 reports in the Sidmouth Herald, including "Home Service blows audience away", which were exactly my words too. (Maybe a double meaning there as some folk left early - maybe had other things to do or too loud for them!) But a standing ovation at the end.
Bought the CD and played it in the car on the long trail home yesterday: even my other half, who complained when i switched off his beloved Classic FM, seemed to enjoy it!
Don't miss them at other festivals if you missed it there!
For me, that was best concert of the week, although there were some others I wanted to go to and couldn't get into. Haven't yet done the maths to see if it was worth buying the week season ticket, but with workshops and other concerts taken into account, it was probably break-even.

John Kirkpatrick's Big Band workshop was, as usual, inspirational, sheer enjoyment, and very much worth getting out of bed for 9.30.!
