The Whiskey Shivers at The Crown, Burston, Norfolk - 1st August 2018

Almost implausibly, Texas band "Whiskey Shivers", who had gone from playing to a few hundred at WoW festival a few weeks ago to appearing before 4,000 at Womad, were back to play the tiny Burston Crown, the day before they played at the Cambridge Folk Festival. And so we were there, having cycled over, for a night of crazy music and beer in the sweltering pub - most likely the lowest-ceilinged venue the band has ever experienced. Isobel happens to mention to the band after the gig that she "was in Cambridge the next day and could stop by to say hello" when they were playing at the Folk Festival, and only goes and manages to wangle an invitition including free entry. Thus she gets to see them for the third time and then hang out at the festival catching some more of the Thursday warm up
