Bands on the Beacon was excellent.
I couldn’t get up there until late, but got there in time to see my favourite, Aziz Ibrahim, who did an absolutely blistering cover of Stone Roses ‘Fools Gold’. Barr Beacon was banging, as it clearly had been all day; there were over 5,000 visitors, all enjoying the best in local music and entertainment. The crowds were great, the location was brilliant (although a little windy when the sun hit during the Aziz set).
The refurbished war memorial – now with valueless plastic roof – is looking rather fine, too.
I hear Aziz will be playing Walsall again, soon. Stay tuned for details. You do not want to miss this guy; he’s brilliant.
Ah that wind. Earlier this year we were gripped for weeks by the East wind. Barr Beacon, one of a few places that claim to be the highest ground West of the Russian Steppes!
