Queensclif Music Festival 2016 - Sunday

Sunday 27th November 2016
with Hollie Joyce, Tides of Welcome, Liz Stringer, The Tiny Giants, Reuben Stone, Charm of Finches, Matt Anderson, Snuff Puppets, Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals

Thanks to Sarah for driving me down for the Sunday as she had to play on the train. I did offer to go on with her but she shooed me away. Picked up a neat little book called "OUR FRIEND THE POODLE" from the book binder stall in the hall while looking for baked goods. Also sent some people messages about the complete set of leather-bound Alexander Dumas' novels in its' own mini bookcase for $120. On the way up the street I stopped to pat some poodles and showed them the book but dogs do not appreciate literature.

Tides of Welcome is a group I have seen every year at the festival, even when my auntie had to drop me off in Queenscliff for the first three years I attended so I could do so. Some of the members have been in the choir the entire time and some are just new this year. I do enjoy seeing the new things each choir director brings with them.

I also stayed for Liz Stringer after as I was already sitting down and didn't want to get up.

The Tiny Giants played at the bowling club, I thought there would have been more people but it was still good. George had to go straight down to play with Sarah after. Apollo Bay Festival 2010 still holds the records for the most bands with people I know at them playing 14 (only made it down for the final day).

I did pass people heading towards Sarah's show in the church on the way down, but I wanted to see Charm of Finches in the pavilion as I had not seen them for a while.

Turns out the photographers only got 2 songs in the pit for Ben Harper, afterwards I went and sat down with a cone of calamari and read my book about poodles as I had a two hour wait for the bus.

There was an exhibition of about 200 photos from 20 years of the festival in the Town Hall including some of mine but I never made it up there. Oh well another time.

I'll leave the last word to the Sea Scouts who were selling the last of their esky of drinks from the side of the road when people were going home:
"SOFT DRINKS $2! SPRITE! SOLO! SUNKIST! FANTA! COKE! DON'T DRINK BEER! SOFT DRINK IS MUCH BETTER!"
