Singing a new programme of songs inspired by the Earth elements, earth, fire, wind and water, our audience felt the earth move under their feet, fought fire with fire, cried themselves a river and needed nothing more than the air that they breathe for a great night's entertainment. As ever, Musical Director James Wilkinson was at the helm, guiding us through the troubled waters of some innovative and challenging arrangements with trusty acommpanist Ann on keys.|
Our newcomer-MC Duncan carried us along at a fair old pace through the 15-song set including old favourites like Ol' Man River and The Wind Beneath My Wings led by Gareth. Brian gave us a sophisticated rendition of Cry Me A River, while Seamus took us Nightswimming. Garry led us gently through Eternal Flame after a rousing mash-up of Great Ball Of Fire / Ring Of Fire.
