Really lively opener. As Gerry said later, the set was only 20 minutes, but contained an awful lot of notes (mostly in the right order).

Somebody else can list the tracks, but they were all crowd pleasers and the lads were on top form.

They were very good.  The best introductory Acoustic thing I have seen them do, I think.  I'm dredging my memory now, but I think the set was: Festival Bell, Royal Seleccion no 13, Slipjigs and Reels, and finishing with Brilliancy Medley/Cherokee Shuffle.  Maart joined them for the last three.

The choice of the last instrumental set featuring Maart was inspired, and it was beautifully delivered. A great start to the festival

Loved this set. Iím so pleased that Maart was included, and the photo above is just so special.
