I was out last night at the first performance of Dave Whyte's song cycle based on
Donny O'Rourke's book "One Light Burning".
Donny Reading Film Noir - which didn't become a song, exactly, but had lots of accompaniment, as pictured below:
Eddie McGuire playing some Chinese influenced tunes. I remember the percussionist (whose name I didn't manage to catch) playing the harp at a similar event last year, but this time she had lots of unusual percussion instruments. This one was a bit like a very tuneful bin lid...
Elizabeth, a fiddler from Orkney.
Donny and Dave sing about the river.
Birthday cakes and candle.
Donny watching Peter Nardini choose a harmonica (he had lots secreted about his person).
Siobhean McCloskey talking about her trip to the Himalayas to help build a village school.
Taking a bow.
