Quietus Hour 48: Paddy's Green Man Diary

In the first part of our coverage from this past weekend's Green Man Festival, here's a live diary by our Paddy Clarke; photo by Sarah Cohen

This past weekend tQhQ temporarily relocated to the beautiful River Usk valley for the ever-excellent Green Man Festival, where we wandered around watching some of our favourite music and staring at the trees. While Luke and John got busy presenting two shows for the on-site Green Man radio station, our staff writer Paddy Clarke recorded a diary of the weekend's activities, from secret Shirley Collins sessions, loving British Sea Power, and took weather advice from random dads before risking the Ferris wheel. Listen to all that and music from some of the artists playing (including Shirley, British Sea Power, Anna Meredith, Grumbling Fur, Comet Is Coming, Liars, Lift To Experience, Madonnatron, Thee Oh Sees, Richard Dawson) above. The Quietus Hour is back on Thursday with a special from Angus Andrew of Liars. Thanks as ever to our producer, the Mighty Seb White. Check tQ later in the week for our written Green Man coverage.
