The Freiburg Münster market brings everyone into town.
I caught up with Mick at the 2019 Freiburg Blues Festival. We talked about embracing the blues, his love of The Beatles, song writing and unpacked some of the songs on his most recent album, '149 Delta Avenue'. Have a listen.
What really stands out to me about the festival, is the huge love and appreciation for the music and musicians from the festival-goers. The drive of blues isn't take for granted by Freiburgers and it makes for an incredible atmosphere. Have a listen.
Size and sequence really do play a big role in how cites pace themselves out but thankfully they're not the secret ingredients for smiles.
It’s carnival time in Freiburg – and it’s quite something. The kids are let off school for a week, half the population is dressed up in colourfully gawkish medieval robes, there’s face-paint everywhere, and age is absolutely no barrier to participation.
It doesn’t really matter if your language gets changed on you, or if rhythm is flipped around – I think we’re pretty well programmed to keep a level of comfort.
It’s easy to over-do-it in January. With all the excitement of the New Year and those funny little resolutions.
