A review of Donnie Munro at amaSing on Sunday 1st September, 2013.
Donnie Munro, fresh from his cameo at the Party On The Moor, gratefully accepted the baton (in the guise of a well warmed up crowd) from Davy Cowan and most certainly did not disappoint.
Perhaps testimony to his status the crowd swelled by a fair few and maintained the already heightened atmosphere, singing, clapping and dancing along from the off. New material ‘Strangers to the Pine’ – the product of a collaboration with Blair Douglas – was well received but classics such a ‘Protect and Survive’ melted this audience.
I am always very pleasantly surprised at how only a few instruments can produce such a very full sound – in this instance two guitars and a fiddle. In that respect, and very much in the spirit of amaSing, Donnie was joined on stage by the young Shetland fiddler Maggie Anderson; one for the very near future I suspect.
