The last big garden gig at McGettigan’s for the season went down a storm (albeit a calmer, more relaxed one) last Friday, as Irish folk-pop-singing legend played to a full, more mature crowd. Paul is famed for his time in ’60s and ’70s band The Johnstons, as well as the group Planxty in the same decade, followed by a very successful and ongoing solo stint. He talked through the history behind each song before performing it, making the performance a very interactive affair. He also had enough instruments for a full band, even though he was playing solo: switching between the keyboard, two guitars, a mandolin, tin whistle and a bazooka. Tune of the night? The classic ‘Nobody Knows’. Farewell to JLT’s outdoor Irish gigs, though only until September.
