Derek and Rose chilling.

Tony on mandolin, Lynda on vocals.

Berni and Michael.

Frank was in great form--he sang two songs (one of them: Walking the Streets in the Rain).

Don adjusting the sound for Bernie's electric violin, which Tony kindly picked up.
This was around 6:00.

The sound must have been OK--she looks happy enough...

Jo and friends.

Jo and Joe.

Joe and friend, and behind them the mysterious harmonica player.

Susan arrived over from the Nash's session at 7:30 and
did a great rendition of The Band Played Waltzing Matilda

Mary and her sisters--she came all the way from Cavan.

A few hours later Chris returned and cranked up the tempo--here he's accompanying Paddy.

Jo and Seán swaying to the music.

Thanks to Jo for taking the photos, and thanks to everyone who came along to make it a great day!
