The tone for the evening was set by Jim Byrne as he brought comfort to the soul with his eloquent and mellow songs. Showing commendable dexterity on the acoustic guitar, he made the time pass in an amiable manner with the cherry on the cake being the intertwined elegance of the harmonies when Dinny joined him on stage.
