This image suggests that there was only a tiny audience, but the crew had set up the stage so that the sound carried well and so the audience spread out; some sitting, some dancing, others standing smoking or drinking. The audience were... well let's say well-lubricated... and certainly warmed up by the time we went on stage: we followed after four great bands. Having said that they were clearly a crowd of well behaved music lovers and the quality of dancing was very good. We joined that audience both before and after our set, and they were, like us, determined to have a great time.
Our set list contained a song which Gennetta sang, despite her having been poorly earlier in the week with a nasty cold. Toolee sang her delightful song about pipe-weed and had choreographed a splendid dance to go with it. I don't know how she manage to dance and yet still had the breath to sing!
A song which only appears at this time of year is our Bullroarer song so it was a delight to get a chance to play that one. We added two new songs to our set list: a pony song called Genevieve and a song which Gennetta has been very keen to play, a Eluf song about two singing flowers.
We limited the bird songs to two this time, though one member of the audience had requested the Craban song when we started to play the first song: we obliged him later.
