    Is Phillip McCann now involved with B&R? Fantastic stuff,always puts on a cracking show. Looks a fantastic concert chaps. La Calinda and Soave Sia Il Vento are two super pieces not played anything like often enough. Bravo.

    And Leigh Baker's 'Swing Low', also written for the occasion, will round the evening off as an encore!
