Peggy's Kitchen Wall
Submitted by Graham Lumb: "This was my first Cockburn concert and
Greenbelt's first encouter with him. A late-night set (11pm start) in a Big
Top with about 1000 people - some of us had queued since early afternoon - and
the anticipation and atmosphere was electric! Many people at Greenbelt had never
heard of Bruce so my guess is that a core of around 400 people were Cockburn
fans and the rest came out of curiosity. My guess also is that there were 1000
fans at the end! It was a very special show.
Additional comments from David Williams: A show that is still
fresh in my memory, 20 years on. It had been a fraught day, with Bruce's management
about many things, and saying that he would only perform a short set as a result.
However, once on stage, late at night, solo, with just an acoustic guitar,
all concern evaporated and Bruce played an unforgettable set. In fact, he only
when he had played everything that he could without his backing band, and then
apologised for being unable to play any more. I have been captivated ever since.
KNOWN RECORDING: Yes
QUALITY: Very poor
