All Around My Hat

Bank Holiday Monday saw the Pie Tribe visit the Chester Folk Festival for the first time ever. Armed with a picnic (pie included) we spent the afternoon chilling, watching and listening to the variety of events going on around the festival site and its satellite venues around Kelsall.

The weather stayed good and the entertainment was interesting including the massed tribes of Morris Men ( and women!). Stand out for the day for the Pieman was French Chanteuse Flossie Malavialle who sang a lot of Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel songs accompanied by herself on guitar. Well worth a listen with entertaining chat between the songs in a curious french/Geordie accented English.

Also worth a mention was Roy Clinging with his "When this Old Hat was New" repertoire which was a musical history lesson through the 19th Century and fascinating it was. Although the Pie girls might not agree.

Today's Pie of choice was Sainsburys own Pork Pies and they failed badly with dry pastry, no jelly and little taste to the meat. Even with this poor offering we still had a good time.
