While ‘Festival’ might have been a somewhat overly grand title for this extended showcase of acoustic guitarists of the ‘percussive’ bent, there was certainly an intimate, family feel to the Brunswick on this rainy, windswept Sunday. Headline act Chris Woods aside, the performers were all in a state of development, with songs, lyrics, stage persona or performance lacking at some point. That these issues mattered little to the rather fluid crowd was testament to the atmosphere created in the room by organiser and performer Brian McNamara. Next year some of these players will return, and they’ll set the stage alight.
