THE BRIT TRIP

CORNBURY MUSIC FESTIVAL OF OXFORDSHIRE, YOU GUYS ROCK !!!!

An invitation to play at Cornbury’s Riverside Stage took LUX across the Channel July 9th. We had never met before but festival organizer Hugh Phillimore gave us a slot after a listen to our EP this spring. (Now, how that cd found its way to his car on the other side of the Channel is a whole other story…). With our bass player Julien tied up with Jesus Volt at another festival, Thomas d’Arbigny stood in for the gig. A friend who was to be our English “roadie” couldn’t make it either but we managed to get from Paris to Great Tew Park to discover the most beautiful and incredibly well run festival where every single person we encountered was kind and professional. Special thanks to Andy Pickard and his team at Riverside who were fantastic. Not to forget the sound engineers who were happy to have the amps cranked up.  Ask Sylvain about that. It was a kick to play in English to the English. I think the photo says it all. Thanks again guys ! Hope to see you again !
