My bands playing the same stage as John but on the Sunday. We've played the last few years and it's always a great festival. John'll be brilliant. Isn't Liam Tyson out of Cast playing guitar for Robert Platn at the moment - if so, they're on about the same time!

I'm in Charlotte Greig's band. We've gone down the bill a bit the last couple of years though as we haven't had an album out in a while.

John Renbourn was the best act last year by a mile.

John's set at Green Man was unbelievable the other night. They were great in Cardiff last year but this was something else - stamping 1st and 3rds, thumping drums on the offbeat and John just hammering his guitar with cross rhythms and some staggering picking. The whole stage was shaking - the crowd loved it. No-one can touch them at the moment for such a good blues sound.
