Musicport 04 was compelling on lots of levels .
From one of the last big band shows by the mighty Chumbawamba to the beautiful laid-back performance by Altan, the glorious music of Mory Kante and the crowd pleasing antics of The Peatbog Faeries & Baka Beyond.
Other highlights included the highly-charged Bob Brozman, the electrifying DuOud, the soul survivor Geno Washington, Black Umfolosi & defying the odds the very excellent and Yorkshire-based Demon Barber Roadshow
