Celtic Music Radio will be celebrating Scotland’s Patron Saint, St Andrew TONIGHT, Wednesday, 26 November, just a few days before St Andrew’s Day which falls on Sunday 30 November 2014.

Celtic Music Radio will be once again broadcasting live from Ubiquitous Chip, Ashton Lane, Hillhead, in the west end of Glasgow.

Gordon Hotchkiss will present his regular Wednesday night ‘Hotchpotch’ with a St Andrew’s flavour including live sets from local musicians and singers and a few guests.

The live music upstairs starts just after 7.00pm with:
Talisk-Mohsen Amini
(concertina) Hayley Keenan (fiddle) and Craig Irving (Guitar) recently formed trio all living in Scotland and drawing influences from their various backgrounds they come together to bring their own interpretation of traditional music.
Steven Clark 
A insightful singer-songwriter with very thought provoking songs that have also been recorded by notable Scottish artists.
Jim King  
A singer-songwriter and for the last 25 years plus an adoptive Scot as well as writing and recording songs. Jim also does song workshops and tuition.
Shona Masson  Fiddler, originally from the Isle of Skye and now in Glasgow recently joined the Celtic Music Radio team with a programme of Gaelic chat and music on Wednesday nights.

Finlay Allison & Jimmy Ross  Stalwarts of the traditional Scottish folk scene. They met in 1969 and were in the original Levellers as well as too many collaborations to mention, but notably for both involved in the Alistair Hulett Trust projects in recent years.
