This was a sweltering night, witness the on-stage comments to that effect! The venue is a small, intimate and historic building, which due to its proximity to the local residents, is forced to keep the (air-conditioning) doors closed during the performance. One literally dissolved in one's own water of crystallisation!
IMO, highlights are "Long Lankin" and "Demon Of The Well". Whilst I've always felt that Sandy Denny's version of "Tam Lin", with Fairport, was the definitive rendition, this is a sufficiently original arrangement to justify a new title.
Only one encore of the two expected was performed, I think both the band and the audience were pleased to get out alive!
