Nudity! Electrical Danger! Mumford and/or Son! All this and more in Andrew's wet and messy 2014 Glastonbury audio diary. No Clarrie, though. She stayed at home and played X-Box.

The Folk Buddies visit Bristol Folk Festival 2014, the festival that nearly wasn't. It's bells & hankies agogo with Jim Moray & Fairport Convention as Clarrie broods about being too skint to see Lucy Ward and Rilstone manages not to describe R.S.V.P as 'kind of a klezmer ska band'
