All three I went to were 7.30 starts, and he played right through, finishing between 9.15 and 9.30. It did sound as if Peterborough wanted him to finish up, by his comments. Great shows though, and a different set list for each.

We saw Ralph McTell at Canterbury last night (11.11.16).  During the show he made many references to Armistice Day and mentioned his grandfather and great uncles who had been on active service in WWI.

As a gesture, all proceeds of the sales of his EP ‘Unknown Soldier’ that night were going to the Poppy Appeal.
There is more … his final song was ‘Lost Boys’.  Before he introduced it, he explained that once he left the stage, his recording of ‘Unknown Soldier’ would be played and asked that we sit and listen to it.  Incredibly moving.  It had parallels with a funeral service when you listen to the final piece of music and sit there with your thoughts.
 
The songs he sang during the evening (not in order). Walk into the Morning. Nanna’s Song. First Song. Maginot Waltz. Tequila Sunset. Wino and the Mouse. Hesitation Blues. That’ll Do Babe. Ferryman. Streets of London. Diamond Joe. Still in Dreams. Sand in your Shoes. Girl from the Hiring Fair. The Setting. Lost Boys.

Very memorable evening

Just discovered I can now make the Half Moon birthday gig on the 7th Dec...my gig elsewhere moved date, and I can't now make that so I got it refunded.

Bonus, I thought there was only Cadogan left this year!

An incredible evening, taken to places, with characters from my life. hopefully new friends? but delighting in the ones made, along the way. And then at the end.....In the bleak midwinter .........God bless us one and ALL

I wondered if all was well when Ralph suddenly got up from the piano and went off for a break........Before the concert an announcement was made from the theatre tannoy that this 90 minute concert would go straight through without a break? (I think Ralph needed the loo...haha) He did change his shirt though!!  Roll Eyes

Such a fantastic evening, it flew by, so relaxing. Such a brilliant venue for Ralph.  Tiara

Yes, I thought that too. It seemed very strange. Whatever it was, he looked and sounded well though...

Ralph will be the “star guest” at the Hamburger Hafenkonzert (Hamburg Harbour Concert) on St Patrick’s Day, 17th March, and the show will be broadcast on NDR 90,3 on 19th March from 06.00 till 08.00, and repeated on 20th March between 20.00 and 22.00.  There is a link to the live radio stream at https://www.ndr.de/903/sendungen/hamburger_hafenkonzert/index.html

Hamburg is of course the home port of the Peking, whose story Ralph sings in ‘Around the Wild Cape Horn’. Later this year Peking will be brought from New York to Hamburg, where she will be restored and put on permanent display. So that’s one song sorted for Ralph’s Hafenkonzert set list...

Hamburg is an hour ahead of the UK, so the radio broadcast of Ralph's Irish Night concert will be at 5am GMT on Sunday Morning and 7pm Monday Evening. The link for this is https://www.ndr.de/903/epg/stationneunzigdrei102-radioplayer.html

Meanwhile, here is a short clip from Hamburg: http://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendungen/hamburg_journal/St-Patricks-Day-Irische-Nacht-im-Gruenspan,hamj54820.html
