The 'A' Train at Hop Farm 2012: A Review

The 'A' Train are ideal mid-afternoon festival music. Lay down and let the sun, grass and regrets of last night surround you while The 'A' Train play some sleepy British Country. There’s a pedal-steel and some occasional harmonium (I believe).

They’ve got all the ingredients ready to turn out some great songs. What was on display today was promising, and their new single will be worth checking out too.

Some crowd interaction was attempted but it didn’t quite work. Partly because everyone was happy to sit back and let the music sweep them away, also because a child was chasing an Umbrella and stealing the limelight. The child then fell into a bear trap, hopefully.
