The Mackerels go to Truck

This weekend was our first visit to Truck, an intimate and friendly music festival held on a farm near Oxford. This was their 13th such event and was blessed with sunshine throughout. Mrs Mackerel and I took the three Mackerel sprats along on both days and had a thoroughly good time whether it was learning the Poyes(? – top left) , sampling the Rotary Club’s top-notch lentil dahl, or singing along to Stornoway as the sun set over the horizon.

The line-up was full and varied offering Blood Red Shoes, MewTeenage Fanclub and Bellowhead on the main stage or Chapel Club, Pulled Apart By Horses and local ‘next big thing’ retro blues rockers Little Fish in the cowshed. Highlights were many (despite some occasional muddy sound in aforesaid cowshed), especially Holly Miranda’s set which was truly superb.

I think we will be back. Some samplers below.
