Review of Fundraiser Night in Glad Cafe on Sunday 26th Nov 2017

SPECIAL GIG RAISES £1,200 FOR CELTIC MUSIC RADIO

There was little doubt that a special, one-night only performance by a band featuring four of Scotland’s top musicians would be a memorable event.

And so it was when The Marchtown Prophets  – Gillian Frame, Jill Jackson, Findlay Napier and Rab Noakes – played a set full of emotion, sparkle and fun at Glasgow’s Glad Café on the last Sunday in November in a fund raiser for Celtic Music Radio.

Ronnie Brown from “The Corries” guests with Gavin Paterson

Listen again on Catch up – first hour second hour

Gavin writes:

I recently interviewed Ronnie Browne – aka “That Guy Fae The Corries”. For the first time *ever*, Ronnie wanted to talk about his life in music; from the first gigs and recordings of The Corrie Folk Trio & Paddie Bell right through to the solo work that he did after the passing of Roy Williamson.

I actually have far more material than I can use on one two-hour show so I’ll post some of it on here and play some on later shows as well.

I ken fine that The Corries were sneered at for years, probably because they were far too successful. It’s time to revisit their work.
