I loved the stomp board percussion myself.  The two fiddlers were taking it in turns to do it, and I can't imagine being able to do that with your two feet whilst also playing the fiddle like that!

I was really looking forward to these, after our dear departed friend Shirl (she of the red feather boa) used to wax lyrical about them. I wasn't disappointed. This is what I like discovering - good traditional music from anywhere in the world, played well and with love and infectious enthusiasm. I was astounded at how the fiddler could keep up the foot-tapping while playing.

Thanks guys for including Le Vent du Nord on the programme, they were perfect for the afternoon slot. I look forward to catching them again somewhere.

Shirl would have loved them!  Tiara

Saw them last year, and really enjoyed them. They didn't disappoint this year either.

They didnít do it for me, but am glad they went down well for others.
