Thread Name: Worst performance I've ever seen.
Subject: RE: Worst performance I've ever seen.
Agree that Isla St Clair is a very fine singer, especially when she gets into her roots in the N East of Scotland: she sings a beautiful song that her mother wrote: however I am not a fan of what I would call her "singalonga tourist medleys". Stick to your trad stuff, Isla!
And I can think of a few concerts i have been to where the music was technically brilliant, but the sour faces, looking at their boots, and lack of any rapport or contact with the audience left me feeling i might just as well have saved myself the concert fee and listened to their CD at home, where i could maybe have got up and danced around the kitchen to it!
Oh, and the sound guys: sorry but I don't applaud any more if they've nearly sent my head swimming with their excessive decibels: I spent most of one concert recently with fingers in ears (by which I heard the lyrics of the songs better, and maybe helped to preserve the hearing in my one functioning ear!)
