The Kiel gig is ingeniously great. It's very special to sit front row as the stage only is about 30cm (ca. 12inch), right opposite the lads, not much different from having a session in a living room. It was a terrific birthday concert: In the second set, John congratulated the birthday boys Sean und Eamonn, Patsy, along with the audience, sang "Happy Birthday". Sean quipped that there is a song fitting to the occasion and promptly sang "Young Maids Never Wed an Old Man". Barney performed his incomparable "Fiddlers Green", John and Eamonn celebrated "Hens March to the Midden", all songs of our wish list were performed, wonderful!
