When Gareth Dunlop had finished his support slot there was a bit of waiting around before Foy Vance appeared on stage. He started playing straight away amongst all the paraphernalia on stage. He had quite a lot of equipment and managed to use most of it to recreate his unique sound. Prior to this gig I had listened to his CD ‘Live Sessions and the Birth of the Toilet Tour’ and had fallen in love with his song ‘Indiscriminate Act of Kindness’. He played for a good while and played some great songs. He told the crowd that it was the first night of his tour so he would be experimenting and trying out some new songs. He carried off the show very well on his own with the help of a laptop, some other electronic gadgets and a few guitars. At one point he started fiddling with his laptop and explained to the crowd that he was just checking his emails! He played ‘Indiscriminate Act of Kindness’ as part of his encore which was a lovely end to the night for me.
