GUEST,Dita (at work) BS: Anyone for Girvan this weekend (33) RE: BS: Anyone for Girvan this weekend 09 May 01


Had the pleasure of doing two concerts with Fon a bhord (Under the table)on Saturday. Great band, Mike Ward (ex Tannahill Weavers, Alba), Fiddle, Helen (Ex Blae na Gael)whistle, Pasty,(?Glenfiddoch fiddle champion) + vocalist, guitarist & piper, and they also added a clarsach player to the lne up, whom they met on Saturday morning. By Saturday night they were introducing him as a new band member, so they may be a seven peice by now.
Good blend of song and tunes, both sensitive and driving, nice way with the crowd, no airs and graces about them, and were great to work with. I can't recommend them highly enough. I've no personal axe to grind, know Mike and Helen to say hello to, from being on the same bill with them in the past.
My advice, GUEST, howya, is to book them while you can still afford them, they could easily go on to be headliners at Celtic Conections or any other festival in a year or so.
love, john.
