This Web Author would like to say a very special Thank You to Mike Scott for continuing to plow his own furrow in pursuit of the music and for giving us over thirty years of immense enjoyment through listening to the albums and through all of the astonishing Waterboys and solo concerts we WaterFolk have attended. It has been an incredible train ride so far and I ain't gonna disembark now!

Thank You to Mike for sharing concert information from his personal archive, and for allowing these statistics to be published here for the first time in such a comprehensive and accurate form.

Sincere Thanks to Steve Wickham, Anthony Thistlethwaite, Colin Blakey and Joe Chester for the interviews which appear exclusively within this Fan Site.

A big Thank You to Mike, Sharon Shannon, Steve Wickham, Colin Blakey, Zeenie Summers, Anthony Thistlethwaite, Brother Paul Brown, Aongus Ralston & Eamon Ferris for allowing their images to appear in this web site.

A sincere Thank You to Tomás MacEoin for the invitation to his home for an interview.

A heartfelt Thank You to all of The Waterboys past and present, who have all added their own individual brush strokes over the years to The Waterboys sound and have been (and continue to be) an integral part of the live shows!

And to all of the tapers who recorded so many shows over the years. Had it not been for all of you good people and your fine efforts, these shows would simply have become folklore. But because of all of you Waterfolk who have recorded a huge quantity of shows from every era, and in all elements and locations, a comprehensive library of live concert recordings exists. My sincere Thanks go to you all.
