Well...it's all over for an other year...Boxstock that is. Just over two weeks on and I've got my office and workshop almost back to normal and I'm starting proper work again. I've got a long backlog of guitars to get on with, so sincere apologies to all my customers who are still waiting. The responsibility and culmination of a lot of work had taken it's toll on me both physically and mentally..so I'm just about surfacing again! This sort of thing just doesn't stop, as soon as it was over, I had to do the box office returns for the venue, do the AGM minutes and start sifting thru' the photos and video footage that I'd got hold of. And on top of that, already we are planning next year's festival..that's right, a full 12 months ahead, that's the way it has to be.

 

It's been an extraordinarily busy few months, gigs, guitar shows, making guitars and of course the festival.  I don't think I'd realised how much it had all taken out of me until after the festival weekend. Hopefully next year will be a bit easier in that respect, with Ben (Roosterman) helping out on next year's event, assisted by Ant, and I'm hoping that in the first place it will allow me to get on with making some guitars, but also to get on with some more HGMC stuff.

 

Ah well..a lot of new things learned from the festival, some things to build on, some to change, some new ideas..watch out for news as it develops.
