Glastonbury Festival Blog 2011: Treetop Flyers (Part One)

Many bands make their debut at the Glastonbury Festival each year, but for folk rockers Treetop Flyers, today's show on the Other Stage was especially sweet. The London quintet won Glastonbury's prestigious Emerging Talent competition this year and have spent the last couple of days wading through mud and having the time of their life on Worthy Farm, leading up to today's Other Stage gig around noon where they were sandwiched between Alice Gold and Twilight Singers.

TAS asked Treetop Flyers' Matthew Starritt if he'd blog about the band's remarkable Glasto adventure - Check out Part Two of the Treetop Flyers' post-Other Stage blog here.  You'll find their new single "Things Will Change" on Communion Records and download a free track via their Facebook page.

Treetop Flyers' Glastonbury Blog, Part One (Matthew Starritt)

Hello from Glastonbury UK!

We're currently on the second day of the festival having played three shows yesterday. Thursday's highlight was definately the 1K plus crowd that came to see us at the Avalon Stage; what a way to kick off a festival!

After some much needed rest, today [Friday] sees us play some acoustic sets and recording live to vinyl for Greenpeace in the festival studio; a real treat for us!

The big one is Saturday when we play Glastonbury's prestigious Other Stage. We've never played a stage of this size, but we're really looking forward to giving it the Treetop Flyers touch.

We'll let you know how it goes and hope to see you soon.
