Back to the Island


SHAGRAT RECORDS ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL IN ASSOCIATION WITH DIMBOLA MUSEUM AND GALLERIES AND HOOKAH RECORDS: Sunday 10th July will be marked by a special music event when a number of legendary rock musicians will descend on Freshwater (IOW) to offer us an afternoon and evening of blues, folk, acoustic and psychedelic sounds. Curated by London-based independent archive label, Shagrat and Wokingham’s Hookah Records, the show brings together some of the great figures from the late 60s and early 70s:

  1. It’s going to be a great day/evening! Really looking forward to this one!!!!!

  2. on the subject of festivals it was 46 years ago today & yesterday of the Bath Festival of Blues & Progressive Music.

  3. Having recently found an old poster which had been filed away, I know I saw Pete Berryman play with live Palmer in the Famous Jug Band in December 1969 at the White Hart in Launceston. Ralhp McTell was op of the bill

  4. Mind you Sean, “live” Palmer wasn’t always. He did play on record with the early ISB. Are you working for the Grauniad these days?
