Set: Travelling On for Jesus / Foolish You / Swimming Song / À la claire fontaine / Come a Long Way / First Born / Oh Papa Blues (Chaim Tannenbaum) / (Talk to Me of) Mendocino / Naufragée du tendre / Be My Baby - (set incomplete)line pic
I originally, albeit with reservations, included this set list in July 1976 but have moved it to 1977 since realising that there is a drummer (presumably Dave Mattacks) in the band. The programme produced for this UK tour suggests that 5 Hand Reel were support for the UK shows, but there is contradictory evidence for the concerts in Galway and Dublin. Leeds University was scheduled for the 17th but cancelled. A substitute show was proposed but no details confirmed.

In his biography of Rufus Wainwright - There Will Be Rainbows - Kirk Lake states that Dave Mattacks, supposedly annoyed at his companions' lack of professionalism, walked off stage during the middle of this show and the rest of the band finished the set without him. This would seem to be in error given that he is credited during band introductions prior to the last song and is still drumming on that song. However Melody Maker reported that Mattacks did quit after this show. It is presumed therefore that he did not appear for any of the other shows in February. Witness evidence appreciated.

There are anecdotal references to a "tour" supporting Bonnie Raitt - but only three dates are confirmed. The newspaper article below mentions a US debut Boston show on March 30 and this Bonnie Raitt date with Sippie Wallace might have been that show. However there is no further evidence to support that theory, and the review in Billboard makes no mention of Kate & Anna. Bonnie Raitt's own website lists: 3/30: Boston, MA: Music Hall (with Sippie Wallace); 4/2: Philadelphia, PA: Irvine Auditorium / University of Pennsylvania [Kate & Anna not listed on website - they were not advertised in the University newspaper, but their participation was mentioned in Billboard, although stated there as April 3]; 4/4: Wilmington, DE: Mt. Pleasant School Auditorium; 4/5: Washington DC: Warner Center (with the McGarrigles); 4/6: Washington DC: Warner Center [no support listed on website]; 4/8: Washington DC: Warner Center [Catfish Hodge not listed on website].

Broadcast date for Belgian TV show "Dolle Dinsdag" which featured Kate & Anna, Hunters, Actopus, Will Tura, Caby Lang and Real Thing. For a time it seemed unlikely that the sisters appeared in person, but they had been in Brussels during April as part of a European promotional tour so it is possible they recorded there during that time.
