Yesterday was a day of celebration of the life of Adrian Price (Mole); drummer with Kingfisher Blue ; who sadly left us suddenly in January.
Ethryll had been invited to play as we are a fellow band in the same scene as Kingfisher Blue and have performed many gigs with the guys.
The gig was held in a small marquee at The Brothers Arms in Heeley, Sheffield. A pub with a beer garden featuring magnificent views over the valley. Such a poignant location as it was also Mole’s local.
It was a stunning gig and was also the first full 5 piece Ethryll gig with all the band together including new guitarist Jake.
It was also a perfect day to play our song Burning Blue which is about a perfect Summer day. As the festival continued we were treated to a magnificent sunset.
Quite a few pictures were taken – the gallery is below.
I suspect more photos will come in over the next few days so keep checking back!
Last night we did the Local Authority gig supporting Strangefish.
Ethryll supported Kingfisher Blue at Mabon Fest.
Yet another great gig although the attendance was a little thin on the font ground.
Yes. I’m wearing PVC jeans… I caused a bit of a stir!
A superb gig supporting one of my favourite prog bands.
Our first gig here. Sunday afternoon so the attendance wasn’t amazing, but Rich Sayles grabbed us some amazing photos.
So yeah, the folk train was a thing we did, and I was really surprised by how good it was. Not only was the back carriage much fuller than last time (only a single band played last train) but it was a very appreciative crowd.
I think it was a good call!
Sadly, though, the next gig on Tuesday next week is not happening any more due to a mix up, but we’ve just managed to pull a support with a known band later in October so all is good really!
Our second gig here. This time we hada little more control over the gear and the sound was a little better.
Sadly the West Street Ale House is set to close as the building is being demolished.
