Pop: Jam in the Park Finsbury Park, London

Jam in the Park's headlining small, hairy attraction was in finer fettle than the Fleadh's and, where Bob Dylan should have been the day before, the phat cat in the hat rounded off a Sunday of languid grooves for the funk faithful. Jazz-funk jamborees often peddle fuzzy-headed "one world" peace and loveisms, a breezy lifestyle accessory for uptight professional types and public school loafers ("Wave your trust funds in the air, like you just don't care!") but Jam in the Park triumphantly proved as varied as the weather.

THE EYE ON: POP & JAZZ

Erykah Badu plays at the Jam In The Park, Finsbury Park, London N4 (0541 500 044) 8 June

Preview: Fleadh 97

Despite the sad absence of Bob Dylan, The Fleadh Festival (pronounced 'flah' to rhyme with bar) will go ahead this Saturday in Finsbury Park, North London, with Van Morrison moved to the headline spot. Everyone will shout for 'Brown-eyed Girl' and 'Baby Please Don't Go' but he'll probably play something off his last few albums instead. In temperament, The Man is renown for being surly and grumpy towards audiences, like Victor Mildew backed with fiddle players, however he has a knack for being able to put in a stunning performance. In contrast, the jolly figure of Ian Broudie and his Lightning Seeds' brand of sugar-coated pop will help us forgive him for being a co-conspirator behind the 'Three Lions' single and the phrase 'football's coming home'. Other acts include: The Divine Comedy led by Neil Hannon, Dreadzone's mix of ambient and dub, Suzanne Vega, friend of lonely bedsitters and Brian Kennedy's cheery blend of happily orchestrated songs. The hidden delight will be Superstar whose eponymous single is one of the great undiscovered hits this year.

A little glory in the Black Hills

Van Morrison invited to open the Hay-on-Wye literary festival? It's more of a masterstroke than a mistake. Shun the spoken word as he might, The Man is loved by the bookish.
