Last weekend at Unearthed In A Field turned out to be a very meaningful festival to me after I met this young guy called Bryn. He came up to my stall and happily played the guitars with me for at least a couple of hours every day.
On the second day his mother came over and explained that Bryn is autistic and could usually be very timid, and that he had never even played guitar before! She was so happy to see him playing guitar with me that she secretly decided to buy him one and on the last day we formed a big jam session, where I presented Bryn with his new guitar. He picked it right up and played it with ease in front of everybody there which brought his mother (and then me) to tears! He told me he’d made up two of his own songs already by the time i’d left, so i’m expecting his first album soon..
