  1. Oh yes, fantastic setlist. A fusion of ‘Poetic Champions’ and ‘Irish Heartbeat’, presumably without the Chieftains as they are not listed. I’ve got some vague recollection that they were actually at this gig. Doesn’t really matter, this one is coming down immediately and will be much appreciated either way!

    Thanks Mat, more high octane fuel for the fire

  2. OK, no Paddy and no uilleann pipes, but mercifully no bagpipes either!!

    The sound isn’t absolutely perfect (pretty good) but the music definitely is!

  3. Sorry correction, sound is better than i suggested. My Bose ‘cans’ which demand a ‘AAA’ battery tend to break up and fragment the sound when the battery is draining. I’ve exhausted all my supplies, emptied the cupboards and the remote controls. Now i’ve had to resort to rechargeables of unknown lineage! Determined to get to the end of this gig. You have surpassed yourself Mat, an absolute gem. The Poetic Champions tracks are sublime, possibly even exceeding the orig album takes.

  4. So Nice to re-upload this one.

    Is there any chance for “Alive in Mystery” (1987) and ” Groningen, Netherlands ” (1992)

    That’s a wonderful work.
    Many thanks
