LIMS 09: the very best of day four

A glorious London International Music Show came to an end yesterday, and a quick glance through day one's, day two's and day three's highlights (not to mention day four's must-see content below), proves what a stella year 2009 turned out to be.

We're leading the final day with a shoe-tapping performance from Albert Lee and some 'ingenius' new product in the shape of the Mark Bass MoMark. And, of course, one or two oddities from the show floor… see you next year!
