Junk at Camelot
A few weeks ago we went out to Camelot to see Mic Conway's National Junk band, supported by our friends in the Rusty Spring Syncopators. I have been wanting to get out to this venue ever since it opened! It's owner, Yaron, is an amazing collector of everything 'camels' - the place is chocker-block with quirky bits and pieces of camel-related things he has acquired over the years. It is like sitting in a cabinet of curiosities, with the added bonus of yummy food and great music.
The bands were such fun. I had never seen Mic Conway's group - but am now a huge fan. They were seriously entertaining. Not only did they produce a great sound, but there was tap dancing, humour and magic tricks! I can't wait to go see them again!
I wore a new (to me) dress, made of the most lovely silk. It might just be my new favourite!
