SURE, if you look at the line-up of this year’s Timbre Rock & Roots music festival, there’s more roots music than rock music, but that didn’t stop 7,800 people from enjoying themselves. What with the likes of Keb’ Mo’, Hugo and The Specials making Singapore debuts. The return of two of my favourite performers, Trombone Shorty and Buddy Guy, and the incredible EWF. Oh, some cool performances by bands from around the region and Singapore, to wit, Checkpoint Jam, Bleu Rascals, and Andre Harihandoyo & Sonic People.
While I there are times when I think that reading about music doesn’t make any sense, there are times when I don’t. And there are times when I reading about music while thinking. And there are times when I don’t.
Luckily, photographers Aloysius Lim and Johnathan Wong were on hand to snap some snappy photos, so that I can share them with you now. And thus not have to carry on with that rather silly train of thought that appeared in the last paragraph.
Which just leaves me with nothing much else to say except thanks Timbre, for bringing us another weekend of cool music.
