Concert features:
It was a crowded "Store Sal" (Big Hall), filled to its limit of apx 250 spectators, as this gig launched as one of many Irish / Celtic inspired shows at this venue, over the last year.
The interest for this type of folk music grows. :-)

The instrumentaion of the band was quite an outfit, as they used no rhytm section, such as bass or percussion.
Despite this, the band still managed good known, and some less known Irish songs, garnished with some nice storytelling.
Specially the flute was quite stunning. I really couldn't tell when Doireann had time to breathe, amazing.

It was encouraged right from start of the concert, to come up with requests, yet the band didn't play all of these.

The traditional "Encore Claps" was left out, as the band introduced encores on the fly. :-)

Dave Rafferty several times referred to the Venue as Port Allen. :-)
It is more rightfully Portalen - The Portal.

Guiness and Kilkenny from the tap were available throughout the concert. Yummie.

We had a chance for a talk with Dave Rafferty and Doireann Nic Mhath�na after the show, and they proved very friendly and approachable.
Many could learn from this.
Got a CD bought and signed. "Having The Craic".

A very enjoyable evening, which certainly makes us think of looking them up again, if they return one day.

The recording here, is for free sharing. No limits applied.

No attempts of remastering of this project are welcomed, this sounds as close it ever could, as being at the actual gig.

Never ever sell bootlegs, share for free. Support the artists, go to their concerts and buy their official stuff.
