I agree. I saw them last night at the Arches with Mercedes Peon, Dochas and Michael McGoldrick. They were hampered by serious sound problems, but came through it. Fantastic music. Last night's Arches concert was recorded by BBC4 for broadcast towards the end of February. Le Vent Du Nord were also on the Travelling Folk programme recorded this afternoon to be broadcast on Thursday.
And, John, if you noticed someone standing at the back door during the Open Stage last night (at least I think it was last night, I need a rest already), singing along to Bonnie Dundee and Yellow on the Broom, that was me. Good set, and good luck.
Mercedes Peon was amazing. I saw her last week on a double bill with John McCusker. Great sets from both of them.
