Lowe Aspviken put a very favourable report about the 19 March gig in his Tranås-Folket blog. Be sure to hop over to his blog for the full report (in Swedish). He was very impressed as these quotes from the blog prove:

Yesterday I was at De Geerhallen in Norrköping and saw and heard the Dubliners, Irish folk music`s Grand old men. [...] I started to listen to The Dubliners` music when I was about 13-14 years old, and I can honestly say they were the reason that I started to get interested in music for real [...] After the concert was finished I had the courage to step behind the scene for to meet my idols. [...] My friend Henrik and I got the chance to tag along with Patsy Watchorn up to meet Barney, John and the others. [...] From Barney McKenna I got this good advice for my own bano playing: “I`ll tell you the great secret. Don`t hold the plectrum too tight. Think of a little bird – if you hold it too tight, you`ll kill it”. So now I have met my heroes, alive and in Norrköping of all places. Tjohoo!
