Mark reflects on Sweden Rock
With Sweden Rock in the rear-view mirror, we asked Mark Abrahams to share his thoughts on playing his first gig with Wishbone Ash:
Wow, what an experience!
As the saying goes, ‘Been there, done that, got the T-shirt’. Well, I always had the T-shirt … now I’ve been there and can say with pride and amazement ‘I’ve done that!’
The festival had a great atmosphere; off stage the band had plenty of laughs and jokes, and on stage I feel we put on a superb show with lots of energy, a great set list and played to a lively and appreciative crowd. From opening the show with ‘The King Will Come’ to closing the set with ‘Blowin' Free,’ I loved every minute.
From the stage, looking out over the crowds of people, it was nice to see fans there wearing Wishbone Ash T-shirts and showing their support. After our set it was good to meet and chat with some fans of the band and I was chuffed to hear their words of support and positive comments.
Sweden Rock Festival was a great experience and I’m looking forward to playing our next festivals on the 20th of July and 9th of September, both in Switzerland; then I’ll be counting down to the U.S and Canada tour in September and the U.K tour in October.
