Although I can't fault the performance, which was pretty darn amazing. What always gets me is peoples reactions to performances like this. He can play his instrument, woo hoo! This is a common occurance that I find in the classical world, you find people that are gifted, talented and amazing. It's expected. Why is this not the case in the folk world? I was performing concertos with orchestras at the age of 15 ... I could play my instrument. Why do people seem so surprised in folk?
