‘The 13th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus, a Fruits de Mer Festival of Psychedelia’ was a festival that took place in Aberteifi/Cardigan, Cymru/Wales, on Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August.
I decided to take a week holiday from my tourist-guide job to attend the festival. And I absolutely didn’t regret it: there were a lot of fine bands, in a nice small venue (The Castle Cafe and Cellar Bar, with an extra stage at the river’s edge-Pizza Tipi on the 9th of August), the weather and the atmosphere were great and I met a lot of nice people.
I also managed to record all but two of the gigs, and will upload most of them in the course of time.
This is the fourteenth one, Jack Ellister with his third set, played at the river’s edge-Pizza Tipi. As is was the opening set of the day at noon, so relatively early for a Sunday, the people who were present were there actually for the music, so there’s hardly any chatter, as opposed to during the sets on Friday and Saturday in the Cellar Bar.
Jack played a short set on all the three days, but the first day I missed the first song, I still hope one of my fellow ’tapers’ can provide me with that one, so that I can upload that complete set too.
I’ll include a few pictures of the festival poster, the ticket, the running order, and Jack.
