    Anyone watching?

    Awful rubbish. Imelda May and later a traveller man doing this modern poetry/rap rubbish.

    Some modern trad with a blond haired girl 'dancing' on a bridge. Damien Dempsey, wearing a celtic torc, to make himself look more gaelic, droning some dirge.

    Awful stuff.

    The modern trad group were quite good and at least had some musicianship about them. The Eddie the Eagle lookalike doing the rap/poetry with the cap and hoodie was like a parody. Rats from the Flats wants his act back.

    I was channel-hoping when I stumbled on it. It was tough going alright. However two acts stood out for me...

    Skippers Alley (& Edwina Gukian)

    And there were 3 guys on some Donegal cliff performing 'The Drinkers, The Gamblers.' The lead singer was, err, not as good as the second singer, Adrian Crowley.
