Setlist and photo from Doug and Sheila Small (corrected by Iain). Davie Nettleship reports:
hall is a restored old church type venue. It wasn't full, but maybe
the word has not spread. Local advertising of the gig was very poor,
but Bruce responded with an array of pearls strewn to the intimate audiance.
Dunno what this going off for encores is all about, he should have stayed on and taken the applause and heckles for more and 'specific' songs like a musician should.
He seemed happy and relaxed as were the crowd, even to the point where at the break someone added a few suggestions to his set list on the floor. Bruce acknowledged this jape with a smile, and carried on regardless. We Scots are known as a canny race, and Bruce took the encore request of start again from the beginning in the same gracious way as the request for Mr Tambourine Man when he picked up the 12-string.
Iain also adds: Bruce talked about Wondering Where The Lions Are as being quite an old song, but Tried And Tested was kind of the same. At Robin, he talked about remembering how Lord Of The Starfields came about: spending time in a friend's log cabin north of Toronto, and being struck by all the stars, thinking he should write a song about it and having to work very hard to make it happen. Open came to him very easily, almost as if he woke up and it was there, he just had to scribble it down quickly: "It made me feel like a real artist!" With genuine inspiration!
