I just saw Sharon Shannon last night at the Backstage in
Seattle--brilliant show, but with some minor sound problems in the first
half, namely, bass too loud and guitar too soft. Apparently, their
engineer is responsible, but some requests between sets did the trick,
for the second set was perfect. Sharon is amazing--immensely talented on
both button accordion and fiddle. New to me, but apparently one of the
hotttest acts going in Ireland these days, or so I'm told. Don't miss
her; she's one of the most charming performers I've seen in a long time.
