Additional comments Audience recording of the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival in Wales. Mark Knopfler was on stage for around an hour, interviewed by Matthew Evans. Accompanied by Guy Fletcher, Mark spoke of his career in music and played excerpts from Donegan's gone, Rüdiger, Romeo and Juliet and Sailing to Philadelphia. The songs Song for Sonny Liston, Going home, and a new song, Secondary Waltz, were played in their entirity. Funny moment when Mark Knopfler is joining Guy Fletcher for a spot of boogie-woogie piano! Good sound quality.
