- August 2007
Colzium park is an intimate park for a festival, with people dotting the grassy slopes down towards the main Colzium, stage. There was a Japanese tea ceremony in the Walled garden, an enclosed area for dancers and drummers, the waterside stage surrounded by stalls and rides and the Acoustic stage. KIC was set on 4 stages and fortunately the rain held off. The colourful fun festival provides something for everyone. There were colourful dancers energetic drummers, young rock bands and lots of fun events for families. Billed as a day out for families it attracts a good turn out.
Headlining was chart topping singer songwriter David Sneddon and in demand Ceilidh band the Peatbog Faeries. David’s set was around 3. He has a distinctive sound and voice - with strong dynamic piano playing and sincere emotionally passionate vocals and melodies that reach into your heart. A subtle blend of sensitive melody and rhythmic moods. David’s songs conjure up vivid images. He sang his 2 hit songs and Eltons’ Rocket Man, as well as songs from his new EP. The crowd lining the grassy slope at the Colzium stage enjoyed his set.
A highlight is the Parade from the Colzium house and down through the park, including Rhythm Wave drummers, Pipers, dancers and Majorettes. The festival was very pleased to be able to bring over from
The Peatbog Fearies ended the day’s entertainment about , with a blistering set of tunes. They mix Celtic and jazz, with a full brass section. They have an energetic fiddle player, and vary this with the flute. The crowd were on their feet dancing to end a fun and colourful festival.
