We had a great trip to The Big Tent Festival at the weekend. Our local festival in Fife. Great music, superb food and the beer from The Black Isle Brewery was OK too!
Fi and sunny Falkland
We had a wonderful weekend,all your senses are activated at this festival. On Sunday that extra sense kicked in too….
Fiona is in training for the Loch Ness Marathon (more about running soon) so she is dragging me out on some of the runs. We had a sticky but enjoyable run up into The Lomonds and were trotting back into Falkland, salivating at the thought of a Puddledubler for brunch!
We heard a fellow runner coming up quick behind and an old fella and his dog appeared. The smiling collie danced along, tongue hanging out with pure pleasure and his lean owner slowed to our pace for a chat. It turns out Bob owns the fiddle shop in Falkland; buying, selling repairing. Bob has done that run or similar every day for 33 years! It was hard to tell if he was 53 or 73!!
Anyway we got to chatting about the festival and the music. Bob casually dropped in to conversation, in the nicest possible way, that Rosanne Cash was popping in to the shop on Monday and oh yeah he had met her dad too!

Well this was confirmed to us in the best possible way as an emotional Rosanne waved to Bob, standing beside us in the crowd, and gave him a mention. The Cash fans buzzed around him asking if he could pass a book on to be signed, showing him letters received from Johnny researching his family history.
Rosanne sang as if she was singing to a crowd full of friends, the sun shone and we felt, well something!
