      2. Ronan & Desi: Blacked table between us to lay instruments


  2. Lights

      1. Low lights, as heat puts the instruments out of tune

  5. Desk

      1. We leave most of the sound decisions to you except for three:

      2. 1. Sean's bouzouki - big bottom like Guitar, not mandolin

      3. 2. Ronan's chanter remove top to make a "fatter" sound

      4. 3. Ronan sometimes sings low pitched harmonies so you may have to ride the fader a bit
