Studio Guest – Morgan Evans – with Stewart Fenwick Celtic Country – Sun 25 June 12 noon

This Sunday 25 June on Celtic Country at 12 noon , we’ve a visit from Australian Country music star, Morgan Evans. He will be playing live in the studio, prior to his appearance on Monday night at Oran Mor.
Hailing from Newcastle, Australia, a steel and coal town on the east coast, Evans recalls an early interest in music when he started playing guitar at the age of 13.  He spent his teenage years seeing the country through the windshield of an old van as he toured in a band with his brother.
Raised listening to artists like Garth Brooks, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Led Zeppelin, it was at the age of 17 when a Keith Urban concert changed his life. From that point on, he knew music was exactly what he wanted to spend his life creating. Signed to Warner Music Australia since 2012, he now continues his relationship with the Warner Music family in Nashville.
Evans played the historic Grand Ole Opry stage in May, followed by a performance the following evening at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Café, and is currently in the studio working on new music with songwriter/producer Chris DeStefano (Dan+Shay, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett).

Studio Guest – Iain Fergus of New Celeste – 20th June – with the Phat Controller Iain Copeland 10-midnight

Studio Guest – Iain Fergus of New Celeste – 20 June – with the Phat Controller Iain Copeland 10-midnight

Listen again :- First Hour Second Hour

 

‘First formed in the late 1970’s, combining folk, rock and jazz players from the Glasgow music scene, New Celeste broke the mould at that time with their rock and jazz treatments of traditional music and their fast and furious stage act. The band toured extensively in Scotland and England, touring twice with Billy Connolly and recording a half hour ‘In Concert’ for ITV. They rapidly found themselves in Europe recording three albums – ‘High Sands and the Liquid Lake’ in Holland, ‘On the Line’ in Berlin and then ‘New Celeste Live’ in Brittany, France. Propelled across a continent, they built a huge fan base wherever they played. Exhausted with touring, the band broke up in 1983 and the various band members went their own ways. Guitarist Graeme Duffin joined Wet Wet Wet, drummer Iain Bayne went on to play with Runrig, guitarist Nigel Clark joined Hue & Cry and violinist Rod Dorothy jazzed it with Barbara Thompson’s Paraphernalia.

Founder member guitarist and singer Iain Fergus took a break from music for a while, then reformed New Celeste in 1990 with Rod Dorothy and some new musicians, Steve Reid, Jerry Soffe, Ian Aitken, Willie Logan, Iain Copeland and Brendan Ring and recorded two new CDs for Lismor/Iona Records in Glasgow ‘The Celtic Connection’ and then ‘It’s a New Day’ with Charlie McKerron and Fred Morrison from Capercaillie. The band performed at numerous festivals across Europe, promoting these two CDs.

‘Best New Celeste’ was released on Park Records in 2004 featuring some of New Celeste’s best tracks from their various vinyl and CD releases over three decades. New Celeste released a brand new CD through Park Records in 2016 called ‘A Perfect Sky’. This CD breaks the rules about what a celtic/rock band should be, introduces some great new players, Gavin Marwick on fiddle and Max Saidi on drums and features the single ‘Such a Lovely Day’.

The line-up of New Celeste is as follows:
Iain Fergus: Acoustic guitar and vocals
Steve Reid: Acoustic and electric guitars
Gavin Marwick: Fiddle
Jerry Soffe: Bass guitar
Max Saidi: Drums

‘Dreams We Never Lost’  Tide Lines  – Album of The week 17th June 2017

 

‘Dreams We Never Lost’  Tide Lines  – Album of The week 17 June 2017
Band Members :- Robert Robertson / Ross Wilson / Alasdair Turner / Fergus Munro

 

Tide Lines are a four piece band from Scotland who are heavily influenced by the traditional music of the West Highlands and Islands, but whose highly eclectic sound is driven by acoustic and electric guitars, with drums and keyboards, launched in 2016 and hit

‘Here is the debut album from Tide Lines – The 14-track CD is based around original material as well as a traditional Gaelic song and two tracks of dynamic bagpipe tunes. The songs within, eight of which are from the pen of lead singer Robert Robertson, deal with what it is to be young, what it was to be young, and the influence of place on the grace of youth.
The album also presents a discussion of the complex and wonderful relationship between the rural and the urban, the tranquil and the bustling, or (more specifically) that historic relationship between the band’s native Highlands and Islands, and their resident city of Glasgow.These lyrical themes are encapsulated in the album’s artwork – a specially commissioned painting by Daisy Williams (a young, award-winning artist from the island of Mull) whose piece perfectly captures the emotions of her recent life-changing move from the Hebrides to the bright lights of Glasgow.Featuring on the album are a number of talented guest musicians – including Anthony Thistlethwaite of The Saw Doctors and The Waterboys, whose saxophone and mandolin playing beautifully augment two of the tracks.’

Studio Guests – Journey North playing live – Sun 18 June 2-3pm with Ian Oliphant

Journey North will be joining Ian Oliphant in the Studio on Sunday 18 June 2-3pm 

 

 

Journey North    Band Members are Stuart Brimner / George Abbott / Paul Linfield / Gordon Lee / Kevin Spears

Journey North  are a 5 piece acoustic Scottish folk rock band based in Perthshire, Tayside and Fife, Scotland.
Drawing on a mix of musical backgrounds from rock and blues to world class pipe bands, they blend the instruments and storytelling traditions of Scottish music with the dynamics of a rock band. The result is a sound a style which, while paying due deference to their influences, is uniquely their own.

In their relatively short time together, they have released two albums and alongside their own gigs they have supported the Peatbog Fairies as well as Fife’s own Break The Butterfly. Their love of playing live is clear to see and their near telepathic musical interplay means they are not afraid to add to and adapt their songs, making each performance different.

‘We are a group of experienced musicians from different musical backgrounds and we all agree that this is the band for us.  This is the one we have been waiting for and we hope you will join us!’

 

Upcoming gigs :-
23/ 24 June Portsoy Boat Festival
19 July Eilean Doracha Festival
30 July Gala Rocks – Coupar Angus
