Ralph's second night of his spring tour was at Poppleton, a village on the River Ouse near York. It oused alright, all weekend. But that couldn't dampen the music. Fairport Convention on Friday, Ralph on Saturday. A dream ticket. Ralph sang:

Thanks John - an interesting review.

Ralph clearly has great potential as an actor if he can appear to be a 'relaxed performer' - he can obviously fool watchers into thinking he is what he's not!

Can't wait to see / hear him in November having read this review to whet my appetite - it's about 2 years since we last saw him perform - feels like ages!

I was at Union Chapel last night to see our very own 'Sir' Ralph...come on, what does it take to recognise this wonderful national treasure we have when so many other non-talents seemed to get honoured?!! It was a privilege to see him perform relaxed and in fine voice. The 'Ghost of Robert Johnson' just blew me away and the evening was far too short! I saw John Beresford across the 'pews' but sadly had to rush off at the end for a connecting train, so no chat to Ralph or photo shoot for me this time....

A new album is slowly being written but he played as encore  Was hoping for 2 songs as encore especially, 'Somewhere down the road' but the set list was slightly different to John's, no 'hiring fair' or Tequila.

I had commitments at my gliding club and also had to work. Combining the two, a long drive, a meeting, progressed the  build of three servers over A VPN from the club, and got no flying in....  Sad

Anyway.. Thanks for the reviews.
