The Tuesday Swim was under canvas last weekend at the Green Man festival, situated by the river Usk. A small intimate festival where ‘folk music’ loosely describes this very chilled out event. The festival meanders around a private garden and surrounding farm land, where a natural basin creates the auditorium for the main stage.

Harbouring next to the river Usk where sea-trout silently run by at night unknown to several thousand revellers engaged in a collective mix of John Cooper Clarke, a pedal powered dance tent and ultimately for me, the Fleet Foxes.

Robin Pecknold filled the Usk valley with his crisp and haunting vocals, the penultimate song performed was Oliver James sung as a solo by Pecknold that held the crowd open-mouthed, the Fleet Foxes were in a league of their own, true masters of harmony.
