Glastonbury William Blake Festival

Greetings from Glastonbury.
 
I thought it would be good to let Iain’s readers know about the upcoming Blake festival here.
 
Allen Ginsberg seems to want to make his presence known.
 
We have a musical evening on Aug 10th and discovered, after it was arranged, that it was on that very date, 50 yrs ago, that AG got a tune for the Grey Monk come into his head that he then performed just a few weeks later during the tumultuous Chicago Democratic Convention protests. It seemed obvious that it should be performed to Ginsberg’s tune this year. We are hoping to project some imagery from 1968 and hopefully begin with a few shots from Primrose Hill the previous year when Iain was present.
