To review a festival like Cornbury is almost impossible. Back by popular demand after calling it a day last year, organiser Hugh Phillimore had enlisted headliners UB40, Alanis Morissette and the superb Squeeze. Like any festival it’s always going to be the tale of music that I saw, the tale of my personal journey from stage to stage, the tale of what made the weekend special for me.
Steve Holley has been a fan of Adelmo Fornaciari Cavaliere di Gran Croce, aka Zucchero, for many years, and recently had the honour of speaking to him, in the midst of his ‘Wanted’ World tour, which commences June 30. Zucchero will also be performing at the Cornbury Festival, in Oxfordshire, on July 13.
