B+

Shot at a converted Dublin night spot, the Point Depot, this is a smooth musical show.

Nashville squire Jack "Cowboy" Clement, backed by a talented band, the Dead Cowboys, kicks things off. He's followed by Dublin's own Philip Donnelly and then the bill's biggest name, Don Everly (sans singing sibling Phil).

The whole concert seems to have been shot through a blue filter, and nobody sets the stage on fire. But that's part of the show's appeal. It's an unusual grouping of relaxed performers playing easeful music. Watch during the finale for an unannounced appearance onstage by John Prine and Lyle Lovett.
