What a bunch of moaning minnies. We wait for ages to get ANY folk on mainstream BBC and then complain about it! My usual review of a night at a folk club would be worse. We should write to the BBC and thank them for doing it asking for more throughout the year.
I enjoyed the show and was relatively sober at the time, so some of the more thoughtful pieces could be appreciated. Having said that Kate looked very nervous for her first number and against the showy stage costumes of the other artistes had a pretty boring, unflattering dress. She never was a show woman.
Were Liberty X really live or just miming? Looked like the latter to me. Loved the short kilts though (ahem)
First time I had seen Blazing Fiddles and thought they were very good although might have chosen a livelier piece to kick off with.
