Latitude is not just for big-selling worldwide artists as Daisy Victoria proved yesterday.

The singer, 24, from Yaxley, near Eye, was first on at The Lake Stage after being backed to perform by BBC Radio Suffolk’s Introducing show.

Her strong vocals were supported by her guitar, bass work of brother Sam, 26, and drummer Jesse Barrett.

And it wasn’t just on the music front where she had family support. Her grandmother, Madge, was handing out her Facebook details as Daisy played her shimmering indie.

Mum, Suzanne, said she is “of course” her “biggest fan” as dad, Steve, recorded every song.

With her EP Heart Full of Beef already released, Daisy is now looking to release more material later in the year.

If she keeps up her efforts and writes more quality songs she could be a name we will be hearing much more of in the future.

“For too long, the schedules have cried out for a show in which dedicated amateurs, toiling day and night, handcraft sophisticated automatons built on the delicate interplay of hand-wired servo motors with custom-built circuit boards and fingertip motion control, just to see them get smashed to pieces by a dustbin carrying a massive hammer.

OUR HOSPITALITY [US 1923]
BUSTER KEATON

I love films. I love their ability to open a window on the past or to transport us to a possible future. I love the way they act as a repository of great stories and talent. No matter that some films are approaching their centenary, we can continue to appreciate and enjoy the work of great actors and directors at the height of their powers. 
 We can marvel at the comic timing of Buster Keaton, be transfixed by the beauty and delivery of Marilyn Monroe, be dazzled by James Stewart working equally well in romantic comedies, Hitchcock thrillers or gritty Anthony Mann westerns.
