Something Else In The Dean

Something Else In The Dean – Some Photos

Something Else In The Dean is a grassroots festival located at Elton Maze’s in the lovely Forest of Dean.  It is a very relaxed little festival, a chance to catch up with friends for a final fling of the summer.  For the second year in a row we were blessed with stunning weather and Gail and her crew once again put on an event that is quite simply a brilliant way to end the festival season.

I will be writing a full review later, but in the meantime check out a few photographs from the weekend.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.

    Looks like a wonderrful time!! I have never been to the Forest of Dean… but I may well add it to the old bucket list! I love, love, LOVE grassroots music. Speaking of which, HH and I are off to Memphis and Nashville next month – a mini roadtrip sandwiched in between visits to our relatives. I can’t wait to spend an evening at the Blue Note… woohoooo!
