An appreciative audience saw the band put on their acoustic socks at the inkwell. Toned down & more subtle than usual the set worked well.
The Blacksocks feeling at home in this lovely venue . The friendly, positive ethos & vibe @ Inkwell is always inspiring. Playing early in the afternoon enabled us to enjoy an afternoon of great music which included sets from Moose, The Speed Dinosaurs and many others.

The Blacksocks were invited to open the show of this well established event. The set woke up campers, gathered a crowd & set up the day perfectly
Swillington 2013 -The Cowshed Blues
The 2013 event was a celebration of the farm amid the emergence of the threat from the proposed Hs2 railway line. The Blacksocks were joined by Cian Stanworth (a poet who has returned every year since and whose delivery & writing go from strength to strength), as well as the returning Scott Doonican & A Pocketful O'Nowt. When their singer - Mad Mike O’Brien surfaced the following morning he was smelling sweeter than normal - he had been sleeping in the silage!
