150 for Vaguely Sunny

Friday, July 16, 2010 - 10:13

MUSICISLAND music promoters Vaguely Sunny will celebrate their 150th gig tomorrow (Saturday) when local folk-scene stars Holly Kirby and Michael Champion will be joined by new outfit Hosanna Rhythms at Dimbola Lodge, Freshwater.
The gig, branded Homemade 2, is a follow-up to the first Homemade gig — organised by Vaguely Sunny in 2008.
Vaguely Sunny, made up of Vic King, Mike Plumbley and Pete Turner, was founded in 1996 and since then has been responsible for bringing a host of major folk acts to the Island as well as promoting native talent.
Named after a friend’s description of the weather, its first gig was organised in a bid to show the value in having a permanent live music festival site on the Island, helping to pave the way for the revival of the IW Festival.
"The first gig proved so successful, we just carried on," said Vic.
Hosanna Rhythms features well-known Island musicians Anthony Truckell and Tom Gardner, who have previously performed with Island acts Motion Pictures and Drew and their latest project has been described as a gospel/praise act.
As well as the musical offerings, there will be an opportunity for the audience to see Charles Everest’s photography of the 1970 IW Festival, which is on display at the gallery.
