Ah, Green Man Festival, why do you mock me? Why do you willingly choose, year after year, to lift your sodden fingers to smear remorse on my penniless face? You know I can’t afford to fly to you (or take the time off work)!
Sigh. Yet again, the Green Man Festival of England is providing more sleepless-night fodder as Pentangle announced today that they will be headlining the yearly gathering. I’m talking original lineup here, folks: Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox. Yikes. Not to mention the fact that Iron & Wine, Howlin’ Rain, Alela Diane, Caribou, and dozens of others are performing too, all in the bucolic eden of South Wales. I’ll probably be sitting in traffic while Bert Jansch is melting faces with a rendition of “The Snows.”
