Yesterday, in the Stephens Green Centre in Dublin, a group of male singers, members of a Rotary Club if I read it right, sang a number of Christmas carols and standards. They were stunningly good, not in the Welsh male choir good, but far better than the usual choirs of carol singers that sing to collect money for charity on our streets.
This group had a PA system, Yamaha speakers on poles. They had several microphones on stands, a female keyboard player, two acoustic guitar players, one at least was plugged into the PA and a mandolin player. My smartphone is acting up so I could not record or film them. So if on the off chance that any of the singers read this, well done chaps and lady. You brightened up my day.
