SummerTyne Americana is over for another year. A full write-up will follow I’m sure, but I had a splendid time playing tunes for two days and drinking like a bastard. There was whisky and music and brisket and blood (including my own). There were also some phenomenal bands – especially 10 String Symphony, Urban Pioneers, Howe Gelb with Gemma Ray and the phenomenal Yola Carter.

Till I get my writing head on, here’s some pics. Props to Graham “Shippy” “Shipcote” Anderson for putting together a brilliant Jumpin’ Hot Stage and Tamsin Austin for everything else.
