The show that these guys put on is from a different era. They are entertainers. The show is slick, they are pros and they work incredibly hard to get the maximum out of the crowd
I saw a bubble of escapism as the night was danced away. The Power of Music, long may it continue
… the evening was always going to end too soon
it would be easy to play it safe and predictable but it's a festival strength that they keep looking for something new and different with the occasional surprise to keep us on our toes …. somehow each year topping the achievements of the last.
There was such a great atmosphere in the hall, with many completely lost in their own world
This is my first Sunday Sessions appearance at Earlham Park and I have to say I was suitably impressed with the set-up, sound quality and location for an outdoor daytime festival, the slope in the park really allowed the crowd to get a great vantage point of the stage from wherever they were positioned and this really seemed to add to the overall atmospherics of the occasion.
In what has fast become an annual fixture on the Norwich musical calendar, it was back to Earlham park for another day of shameless nostalgia.
.. this has been a cracking evening showcasing three great local performers and some interesting, amusing and unusual film making
The end came too soon, in an evening that had flown by
The words are, of course, powerful and thought-provoking but this is more about having fun than preaching Will also definitely make a point of seeing local acts Piers-Harrion Reid
With a 25 song main set and five song encore, picking highlights is next to impossible
..one of the greatest acts i’ve ever seen in my journalistic career, do not miss a chance to see this consummate entertainer, Gonzales, C.
The Unthanks take folk music, even in its apparently most traditional of forms, and take it to places new and exciting to deliver a captivating show
A Night at the Musicals, with its extravagant costumes is a fun, intimate start to the festival.
Must be amongst one of the best gigs this year
Kyle was still most certainly on fire, he is most certainly still the Don
Stunning soloists, extraordinary harmonies, and flawless execution were evident throughout a performance
What proved consistent throughout the evening was Gillam’s infectious enthusiasm and commitment to her instrument and the eclectic pieces she had chosen to play, something that shone through her brief chats with the audience
Picking standout tracks is nigh impossible but I have to go for Everlone, the mighty Caffeine Bomb and My Baby Is A Headfuck.
The Wedding Present can still do it, and despite many line up changes over the years, they still maintain a remarkable sense of who they are as a band,
Norwich still has a big appetite for Reggae ......
If anyone needed reminding as to just how good Idlewild were and still are, then they got it this evening
Tracks like Ghosts and Lovers ably demonstrate what a beautiful album Ellipsism has turned out to be
I have to keep reminding myself that Dave is still just 20 years old, yet the confidence he has on stage is remarkable
I had a lot of fun attending the GZA show. I hung out with some friends, I listened to some loud classic tunes and I got to see an actual member of the Wu-Tang Clan in Norwich.
Stefflon Don brought the kind of show that I would normally never see, and it was very easy to see why she is so popular. …… I left buzzing after a brilliant night of musical exhilaration, feeling joyous, and having seen something that will live long in my memory.
...the fact that the whole night ended on current single Discourse shows how well received their new material has been.
Sam Coe and The long Shadow, True Adventures and Hot Raison
Whichever route (musical choices, age, or whatever) brought us here, we were all to experience to one of the most moving and stirring musical evenings that I have attended at the UEA.
