I made it again to the Barrowland Ballroom a couple of weeks ago to see you. The last time I saw you there was in May 1991. In the intervening 27 years I’ve seen you in the Glasgow Concert Hall, in Edinburgh, and in Hamilton. I think the first time I saw you was around 1985.
I was a bit apprehensive about going back to ‘The Barras’; May 1991 was the tenth anniversary of the Maze Martyrs, and there was an almost tangible tension in the hall. Added to that, I’m now 27 years older, and am more suited to reclining in my chair at the Concert Hall!
I needn’t have worried. It was a marvellous, memorable experience! The crowd participation was tremendous. My own highlight was Before The Deluge; I don’t think I’ve seen you do it before. That’s one of my ‘Three Christy Songs To Hear Live Before I Die’ ticked off! The other two being The Contender (Jack Doyle), and Butterfly (So Much Wine).
Most importantly, great to see you looking so well, and sounding as good as ever.
