Review Book-Yer-Ane Fest IX
Today I got the link to a review of the Sunday of BYAF in Dundee. I was very pleasantly surprised that I was positively mentioned in it! This is what it said: “Bettie Akkemaai was next up down in The Vestry. Bettie is an anarcho folk punk from Den Bosch in the Netherlands. As she took to the stage she commented on the lack of women playing at the festival (something I had also noticed) and that she was proud to be one of the few to do so. She was very endearing on the small stage, playing honest acoustic music about feminism, community and life as a musician using witty and intelligent lyrics.” High praise, and have to admit quite proud of it!
Here is the link to the blog, if you want to read more about that day and the others that were playing: colinspunkrockworld.blogspot.co.uk
Now getting back into the Daily Life routines, with the memories of touring life still fresh on the surface of my mind. Even my birthday couldn’t quite force them back yet. But hey, it’s possible I might have to wait until spring for the next tour, so these memories will have to be enough until then. The 19th I will have the next gig though, at a friends birthday party. It’s always a pleasure playing for a true fan 🙂
