Another fabulous evening - I thought the band played with particular energy this time, and it was also super to hear early favourites like Another Day included. Acoustic Strawbs
Elvis? This year's surprise appearance to round off the evening was Dave Dixon, doing his Elvis impersonation ... except that he sang Part of the Union!
