Concert Review – Ian Griffin 23rd May 2023

By all accounts a well attended (61) and enjoyed concert. Attendances have yet to recover to pre Covid levels but this concert was the equal in attendees since the pandemic. Last with us 25th June 2018 Ian Griffin returned with his Ketron SD5 and Audya keyboards and Roland pedalboard. A concert of 2 halves in more ways than one. The first half was a mix of music and talk, the latter of which went on a tad too long perhaps. The second half was no chat, straight through requests, all well known which got a Standing ovation at the end.
