The Crows returned to Chatham Maritime Food and Drink Festival on Sunday 28th May 2023 for a 1pm slot in the afternoon sunshine in front of what surely must be a record attendance. The band have played this festival for several years now and cannot remember such large crowds. Again, plenty of food and plenty of drink. The dragon boat racing was in full flow with over 30 teams participating.
The band played 11 songs selected from across their two albums and Listen To Me EP along with Chris taking lead vocal on a cover of the classic Johnny Cash tune Folsom Prison Blues. It was a pleasant surprise when another song was requested at the end of the set and I Won't Need No Rockin' Tonight was quickly chosen, a song that had never been played before at festival and a song that has never been recorded but has been in the band's repertoire for several years and has only resurfaced into the set list this year.
Very many thanks to Sofia and the team for booking us once again. It is always an event the band look forward to playing and we very much look forward to returning once again in 2024.
