Elsa Jean McTaggart

5 stars
*****
7th August show.

With a beautiful voice and highly accomplished fiddling, Elsa sings her own original songs while accompanying herself on either her fiddle or guitar. The songs are very appealing, excellent and often personal – she gives the background to them all and it’s very interesting hearing about the stories surrounding them. There is also further excellent accompaniment and backings from her, well shall I say, accompanist? The balance was great, if a little loud overall.

Elsa has great banter with the audience too and was extremely patient handling the drunk (yes, drunk before 3pm!) and this was a lovely show.

An excellent 45 minutes of professional, talented musicians.
