"sheer class as Georgia and Ian Shaw opened the show with easily their most impressive and entertaining collaboration to date. Highlights were a moving Alone Again Naturally (Gilbert O’ Sullivan), an outstanding vocally dexterous multi-tempo/multi-feel Willow Weep For Me and a rousing bi-lingual treatment of a favourite of these longstanding friends and collaborators, Bowie’s Life on Mars"
"Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw and Mancio whipping up a saucy and sassy musical storm. If there was a gig this year with better banter and bonhomie I'd love to have seen it. With three-part harmonies to die for... whistle-offs and heart-rending ballads, it was quite a night"
