Great Lake Swimmers were in Belfast for a show at the Speakeasy last November, so I grabbed 10 lovely mins with frontman Tony Dekker just after soundcheck, for two acoustic performances.

There was a certain football match on that day, so there was an eery calm to Belfast. I know someone who works in the student union office in the Mandela Hall – he opened his office window and let us climb out on the balcony, as the sun was setting over the city, and Tony had just the right song to play for that moment.
And suddenly all was right in the world for 4 minutes. And then I went home.
