A Tale of Misspent Youth

I was sitting in the pub after one of the free jazz gigs when Dave Clarke (D.Clarke of the Parish of Jazz North East) regaled all present with the story of how, in his youth, he and a friend hitch-hiked from Nottingham to Skegness to be at that unmissable concert featuring the one and only... Acker Bilk! Hoots of laughter eventually subsided whereupon I said 'I'll blog that one'. I resisted considerable sums of money not to disclose such potentially damaging information. I say 'Publish and be damned!'

I'd just like to thank Russell, our man on the inside at the On The Outside Festival for his reports.
Three days of almost nonstop music and beer was service above and beyond the call of duty.
Thank you Russell - next assignment Acker Bilk (What are you like on Scrumpy?)
