I heard from one intrepid insomniac...  but I tuned in this evening.

Ralph sang six songs in two sets (or at least that was how it was broadcast):

Mr Connaughton
The Ghost of Robert Johnson
Streets of London (with many joining in and rapturous applause)

GPO
From Clare to Here
Around the Wild Cape Horn (with explanation of 'Peking' and her imminent return to Hamburg)

The rest of the show was - naturally - trad. Irish, and a good craic was had by all.

Ralph headlined the free St. George's day festival in Trafalgar Square this afternoon. He played for an enjoyable 50 minutes of course finishing with 'Streets' but I still have 'England' and 'London Apprentice' buzzing in my head, Wild Cape Horn and Ghost of Robert Johnson, Peppers and Tomatoes, First and Last Man and Hiring Fair were fabulous.

I have tickets from really useful and from SEE tickets for the same seats (only paid once) and both say 20:00 so i guess its 7.00 for beverages.

Ralph's idea over young support acts came after tickets went on sale, and at least Raplh will be on as scheduled on the tickets when it was sold (there was no support).

In the circumstances this is the best solution. Gig will finish at original time so no transport issues late of a Saturday night. Those arriving early (don't we all?) get a bonus.

I think the info John posted is likely correct.

fyi, the Bakerloo Line is shut all weekend over its full length - the only underground lines servicing Oxford Circus tube station are the Central Line & Victoria Line. Don't get caught out!

Thanks to Ralph fan Denis Piggott for the recording of Ralph singing 'Blues Run the Game' with Al Stewart at Cropredy. (Scroll to the bottom of the page.)

He did dedicate a song to Maart but I didn't note which one, he did say it was arranged by Maart, might well have been Still In Dreams, but there were 2 other songs from Sand In Your Shoes, unless anyone else there can confirm.

At Peterborough he dedicated ‘After Rain’ to Maart, so I suspect it was the same with you . Maart was very involved in Sand in Your Shoes throughout, I understand.

By Ralph's reckoning, yes! It's on 'Somewhere Down the Road'.
