First UK visit for the wonderful IDA (duo of Daniel Littleton formerly of The Hated and Folkways artist Elizabeth Mitchell), who have been around since the early 90s. I have a recording of their set, which included covers of Minutement and Richard & Linda Thompson songs, from freemusicarchive or somewhere similar. LOW were OK but I don't think the selection of sincerely-played Christmas Carols in mid November came over that well.
