Anyway, there's a gallery of photos here and I've embedded a couple of videos below. Apologies in advance for the shaky camera work!
Rodney Branigan was a remarkable find. OK, so his trick with two guitars is a gimmick, but it's a good gimmick ... and the lad can really play. Given just one guitar he produces excellent music, including his self-penned songs.
Meanwhile, Spiro's blend of folk, jazz and classical themes was just right for a warm summer's afternoon with a glass in the hand. Maybe a little more variety in their output would help propel them up a notch or two, but the talent is definitely there.
Show Of Hands were excellent, of course. My only quibble was that a couple of their songs were decidedly unseasonal - Tall Ships and Innocent's Song - which are both winter songs. Why sing them in 25C heat in July?
