It was definitely the busiest night we’ve ever had; standing room only in the hall and a head count of around 140 people at one stage in the evening. ‘The boys’ did us proud, thrilling the audience with two twenty minute sets of unaccompanied traditional folk songs in glorious three-part harmony, with gestures and theatricality and a terrific stage presence. The harmonies and diction were, as ever, immaculate; surely this trio rank with the finest folk acts in the country, or will very soon once they’re properly ‘discovered’. The lads insisted we clear the mics away, and entertained a packed hall with just their voices, proving that the old ways are the best! We hope they enjoyed what must surely have been their most exciting gig yet, as they are new to being in a headlining slot.
