#sunnygovanradio Thursday @ 6:00 New Music City Radio with Jim talking about & playing songs from Raging Twilight
At around 16 minutes on the second of the two podcasts on Ian Oliphant’s show, he plays one of our songs fro our CD. Thanks Ian and looking forward to meeting up.
So, its the last few gigs of 2017, and its a varied mixture of events.
There’s a number of community radio stations who’ve heard our CD and want to talk to me about them. SunnyG has asked me along on the 2nd November to have a chat with Jim about the album and play a few songs, and on the 11th November I’ve an appearance in Dunfermline on Radio West Fife. There should be others, but I’m waiting on them stacking up.
And we were thrilled to have Hope Sails the River played on Saturday by Fiona Elcoat on her show Big Boots and Celtic Roots on Lionheart Radio based in Alnwick.
We’re playing Stirling Folk Club on the 13th November. Its our 3rd outing, so looking forward to catching up with old friends as well a meeting new ones. Similarly on the 2nd December we make a return to Carmunnock Village Hall. And on the 8th December our first gig as a full band at the Monarch Bar in Dunfermline. Its a great venue and hopefully we’ll attract enough people for a good fun night.
Here’s a link to the show with Mike Ritchie, and a few photos
Our first gig at the Star………looking forward to the night
Cottier’s Theatre, Glasgow
IF THE Cottier Dance Project offers a much-needed platform for choreographers – different ages, at different stages, but all keen to try out new ideas – it also offers audiences a glimpse of what’s cooking behind (usually closed) studio doors. Watch This Space gave four dance-makers the floor for about ten minutes each: just enough time to suggest the thrust and style of what a longer piece might look like – and to leave you wanting more. This was especially true of Rosina Bonsu’s Stateless which, as the name implies, focussed on the power-plays between those who “belong” and outsiders who are rebuffed. Using nine dancers, and a graphic strategy of taping the floor into zones, Bonsu gave visceral force to images of exclusion, as when Brian Hartley repeatedly flung himself into a close-packed community only to be forcefully catapulted out.
Just found out I have a showcase gig at Innerleithen on the 19th August at 18:15. My first proper festival gig……hey!
