I have a couple of apologies. Firstly, I was trying out some new equipment, and suffered from a loose connection.
At a number of point one channel dropped out. I have corrected this by patching in the other channel.
Where this is during the music it's pretty unnoticable, as the sound is mono out of the PA. During applause it is
noticable as the sound changes from stereo to mono where I have patched it. Secondly, this was a really long concert,
3 hours 30 - too long for one of my batteries whcih gave out towards the end of the last song, so the very end is missing.
Also due to the length, and the fact there were no breaks, my recorder rolled over to a new file after a couple of hours recording.
There is a very slight jump where this happens. Other than that, the sound is really good. No better recording have surfaced,
so here it is. I have included some links to information on the event, as well as some photos.
Please enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Baby Gramps
Steel guitar performer Baby Gramps is famous for his palindromes. He started performing in 1964 and is still playing professionally as of 2008.
Baby Gramps plays a mixture of styles and eras including traditional blues, children's and labor songs, as well as his own compositions. His busy and unusual guitar style includes flat and finger picking, and "chording" with the back of his hand and his elbow. His singing styles include throat singing. His performance is based in part on improvisation and he often encourages audience participation.
Baby Gramps has performed as a street musician, and has toured with Artis the Spoonman, Béla Fleck and the Flecktones and Phish. His rendition of "The Teddy Bears' Picnic'' was featured in Martin Bell's Academy Award-nominated documentary film, Streetwise (1984).
Martha Wainwright
Martha Wainwright is a Canadian-American folk-pop singer, who recently duetted with Snow Patrol at the V Festival.
Annie Lennox joined forces with Martha and 22 other female artists to raise awareness of the transmission of HIV to unborn children in Africa. The single "Sing" was released on World Aids Day on 1 December 2007, when Lennox appeared at the Nelson Mandela 46664 concert in South Africa.
Her second full-length album, 'I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too', was released in Australia on 10 May 2008, with other countries to follow.
David Thomas
American singer/songwriter David Thomas was one of the founding members of the short-lived protopunkers Rocket From The Tombs (1974-1975), where he went by the name of Crocus Behemoth. Though primarily a singer, he sometimes plays melodeon, trombone, guitar or other instruments.
Thomas's high pitched voice is one of the most distinctive in rock music; Emerson Dameron memorably described his singing as "Jimmy Stewart trapped in an oboe".
Gavin Friday
Founding member of the post punk group 'Virgin Prunes', Gavin Friday has recorded several solo albums and soundtracks.
In September 2006 a 2-CD collection of sea shanties called 'Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys' , produced by Hal Willner, was released on the ANTi- label. Friday contributes to two tracks including the lewd "Baltimore Whores" and "Bully in the Alley" with ex-Virgin Prunes bandmates Guggi and Dave-id.
Teddy Thompson
English singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson released his debut album ‘Teddy Thompson’ in 2000. It received much critical acclaim, but achieved little commercial success. During the time between his debut album and follow up he released the moderately successful Blunderbuss EP , and toured as part of Rosanne Cash's band. His song "Love Her For That" was featured in the film 40 Days and 40 Nights .
Teddy released his new studio album "A Piece Of What You Need" via Verve/Forcast on June 17th 2008. The album contains all new Teddy originals and was produced by Marius DeVries, whom Teddy met while recording background vocals on Rufus Wainwright's "Want" record in 2002. The album includes new songs Teddy has been testing out live, including "Turning The Gun On Myself", "In My Arms" and "Can't Sing Straight"
Julia Fowlis
Scottish folk singer and multi-instrumentalist Julia Fowlis sings primarily in Scottish Gaelic. She is a member of the successful Scottish sextet, Dòchas, who were voted winners of Best Newcomer award at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2004, where Julie herself was nominated for the Best Gaelic Singer award. She won the Horizon award at the 2006 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, won Folk Singer of The Year at the 2008 awards and was nominated for the Folk Singer of the Year award at the 2007 awards. She appeared on Later With Jools Holland on BBC Two on May 25, 2007, and performed Hùg air Bhonaid Mhòir on the show. This cast Julie into the mainstream, gaining her fans such as Björk, Ricky Gervais and Mark Radcliffe and Radiohead's Phil Selway.
Eliza Carthy
Twice-nominated for a prestigious Nationwide Mercury Prize, Eliza is also the winner of more than five BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. In 2003 she became the first traditional English musician to be nominated a BBC Radio 3 Award for World Music.
Describing herself simply as a 'modern British musician', Eliza Carthy is only just beginning to reach the height of her musical powers. During a 15-year career she has become one of the most dazzling and recognised folk musicians of a generation. She has revitalised and made folk music relevant to new audiences and has captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance.
Martin Carthy
Martin Carthy MBE is an English folk singer and guitarist who has remained one of the most influential figures in British traditional music, inspiring contemporaries such as Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. He is a renowned solo performer of traditional songs in a very distinctive style, accompanying himself on his trusty old Martin Guitar; his style is marked by the use of alternative tunings, and a strongly percussive picking style that emphasizes the melody.
In June 1998 he was appointed an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. He was named Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2002, and again in 2005 when he also won the award for Best Traditional Track for 'Famous Flower of Serving Men'. In the 2007 Folk Awards Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick won "Best duo".
Ralph Steadman
Johnny Depp's anthology of songs, "Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys" (2006) contains two contributions from Steadman. He sings lead on "Little Boy Billee", and sings backing vocals on Eliza Carthy's song "Rolling Sea".
Pete Doherty
British rock singer Pete Doherty is well-known as a solo artist as well as the lead singer of the group Babyshambles. He is also the former lead singer of The Libertines.
