welcoming DAVEY DODDS






Davey Dodds, described by Fantasy Forest Festival this year as ‘The master of Celtic rock’n’reel’ is a songwriter of some renown. Top performers frequently record his songs – the classic ‘Magpie’ appeared on the Unthanks recent album, Mount the Air, was used for The Detectorists on BBC2 and was performed at the Proms last year.

Davey has an interesting musical history. Once upon a time, he was the front man of the quintessentially English prog rock band Red Jasper, who topped the bill at The European Symphonic Rock Festival, at The Noorderligt in Holland in 1994. In those far off days, he also played as an acoustic support act for Fish in Holland. When the Dutch record label, SI Music went bust in 1994, Davey stopped playing music and moved to a different planet. For many years, he worked as a fly-fishing guide in remote, wilderness locations. Now that he’s been cajoled back onto the boards, he’s busy writing songs, grown from the roots and bones of his home in North Cornwall. A new solo album is almost complete and he’s playing main stage slots at big festivals.

His live shows fizz with energy. Incisive lyrics and startling musicianship will rattle your braincells and put blisters on your feet. Angel Air records released his recent solo album ‘Kernowcopia’ and the stunning follow up cd will be released later this year. Because he writes great songs and performs with real stage presence, top musicians regularly join him for live shows. Davey is convinced that playing music is making him younger. By this time next year, he fully expects to be in his early thirties!

First we spent an excellent weekend with our FIREFLY FRIENDS in CLOVELLY (Nigel, Babz) who kindly invited us and with such good people as Jedidiah, Martin, Helen,Andrew and all the webbers, and all who made us welcome and helped with all the Help I need - THank You people you have given me so much xxx

NOW This last Weekend.... Gone To Earth Festival (FIRST TIME NEW FESTIVAL) ;-

A First go at a Festival by a really lovely person Karen Light, I thank you for putting on such a great event(and for including us upon the bill and giving us such an opportunity... YOU DID US ALL PROUD Karen AND PLEASE CONTINUE WITH THIS EVENT... (special thanks to ALL OF YOU STAFF AT Stonham Barns - I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH WELL PROVIDED DISABILTY FRIENDLY HELP AT ANY FESTIVAL SITE (FACILTIES/AWARENESS)

Next I feel that without the Support and Love provided by my friends or should I say the "Family" that have welcomed both Alicia, Daisy Dawg and me into their world. Without the Help and Constant Support and Encouragement, I would be stuck in a hinter world of isolation and boredom...

I could write a Book upon how individuals, Bands, Performers,Traders and event organisers who have HELPED ME and given me such practical Love, so here goes the longest but most incomplete Thank You!! so in no sensible order....

Fantastic weekend, trading, dancing, meeting up with friends, great music and lots of fun. Can't wait for next year, well done
I want to say a big thanks to Karen Light and all the team at Stonham Leisure Park for a great festival. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to perform my hooping for you all and was truly touched by everyone’s lovely, uplifting and wonderful feedback. You are all such lovely people and I’d love to be a part of next years festival. Personal highlights were Raven drummers and The Captains Beard Love and light to all.
We had such a fab weekend. We have our towels ready to save "our corner" for next year!! 😂
