One of several instrumental pieces featuring the violin performed regularly within the acoustic set and significant as this piece has been written by Paul who lends his name to the title.
Stage favourite and popular local radio tune which always comes towards the end of an acoustic soiree. First appeared on the Seven Seas album and reflects Patrick's thoughts about his guardian angel. This is an updated and extended version reflecting how the song has developed as a live piece during the last few years featuring Paul's dual violin parts.
DREAMS JUST FADE AWAY
An original tune from Rob which highlights the dreams people have and how such ideas often grow but ultimately fade under the influence of alcohol. Another stalwart of the current acoustic set.
ONE DAY WITHOUT YOU
The music of John Martyn is a continuing influence within band ranks and several of John's tunes are currently performed live within the acoustic format. This piece is a good example of one of them with Paul giving it his all on his mandolin.
AWAY IN THE DISTANCE
Originally written many years ago, Patrick first introduced this song about city life prior to the band's headlining appearance at the Vienna Folk Festival in Austria in 2008.Since this time the song has become a very popular part of the acoustic set and due to interest in this tune the chaps now perform an extended version with a brand new third verse.
