Hope Farming at Hop Farm Festival
POSTED ON July 15th, 2012 BY Lachlan McWilliam
Hop Farm festival
was brimming over with great music, eccentric characters and a whole lotta fresh hope. The stand out performance came from Damien Rice
who we were honoured to meet the following day. We were fascinated to hear that, despite his success, he chooses to live a gypsy life, always on the move and with few possessions, just as we do.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends...
