Excellent concert, great night. Support band the Maccollective were very good, and well worth seeing in their own right, but McGoldrick was fabulous. I’d seen an acoustic gig as a trio, and also the big band 3 maybe 4 years ago. Although acoustic, last night was nearer in sound and feel to the full band. Big rich complex and powerful, great interplay, fantastic musicianship, hugely hugely enjoyable.
And not far off full house either. Massively mixed audience. all sorts and ages. Maybe a wee bit douce still, but a very good atmosphere nevertheless. A terrific night out at Eastwood Park Theatre.
