Cranbrook rain cannot dampen the Crows...

Cranbrook, set in the heart of the weald of Kent and the smallest town in the county, hosted the second Cranfest commencing Friday 9th September 2022. There were various stages and bars hosting live acts throughout town but The Old Country Crows were the second band performing at The George Hotel on Stone Street on the first day of Cranfest. Dating back to 1300, The George is one of Cranbrook’s most historic buildings having played host to King Edward I in 1299, and Queen Elizabeth I in 1573. The visit of Queen Elizabeth I all those years ago seemed a strange coincidence considering the dreadful news we all received with the passing of our Queen Elizabeth II only the previous day.

The stage is set to the rear of The George partly sited on the rear garden patio area and the car park. The band were greeted by stage manager Malcolm Tovey who also gave the band a warm introduction before they took to the stage.

As the skies darkened and the rain began to fall the band played a strong set and put on a good show by trying to brighten the evening with the songs Florida Sun and Heat of the Sun. The performance culminated with a rock 'n' roll finale of Help Me Man and Call Me The Breeze. The audience who had braved the conditions showed their appreciation.
