Returned again this week-end with John Routledge and our respective wives as we had announced earlier.

Whilst Carlos Nunez was superb last week-end I was blown away by Kepa Junkera in the 'Barrowlands' venue. The playing of 'Totem' xylophone was a wonder to behold! Each 'bar' was about the size of a railway sleeper resting on a cradle and played by a pair of percussionists creating fantastic cross rythms - almost African!

Also astounded by Graham MacMillan, a very young Shetland fiddler accompanied by his mother, Alison on electric piano. He was one of the 7 finalists in the Open Mike competition.
