“If Saturday threatened to wash everything out with a torrential downpour at any minute, Sunday offered no such inkling. The sky was blue, the sun was blazing, and opening the show was Yve Mary B, arguably one of nicest people you’re ever going to meet, with a voice as velvety as melted chocolate. To quote Paul Heath, a fellow local music buff “if Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks were to somehow have a baby, that baby would be Yve.

““Yve has a voice that will mesmerise you. Having booked her as solo and in her bands,we have always had nothing but praise. A repertoire that will span and please all ages a beautiful voice and a beautiful and very talented lady.””

Waiting their cue, a mix of bohemian furs and T shirts, they all exchange grins of anticipation, knowing they can do it. Then the guitars chime together, Beatle-like. And not just because of that distinctive Rickenbacker jangle, the melodic ensemble of the playing or even because this was an all-singing four piece.
