Celtic Music Radio’s Big Move

Mar 1, 2015

New studio, new partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University

After almost nine years based at the Livingstone Tower, Celtic Music Radio has moved its studio base about a mile away to Buchanan House in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University.

Celtic Music Radio has been working with Glasgow Caledonian University for four years, principally with students on the Audio Engineering course and with Senior Lecturer Mr Patrick Quinn within the School of Engineering and Built Environment.

Involvement has been during Celtic Connections broadcasts and at other events where audio engineering students provide support and obtain ‘real life’ work experience of live broadcast events plus in the radio broadcast studio for live music sessions and interviews.

This relationship has developed with the invitation of accommodation at Buchanan House in Glasgow city centre where Glasgow Caledonian University occupies five floors at Buchanan House which is adjacent to the university’s Campus.

This move will enhance volunteering opportunities and develop the Celtic Music Radio programme service and community involvement. Over time, there will also be the opportunity for other Glasgow Caledonian University departments to benefit from working with Celtic Music Radio.

Ceòl ’s Craic: two special guests from Wales

Feb 28, 2015

Bidh Ceòl ’s Craic a’ cur fàilte air dithis às a’ Chuimrigh gu ‘Ceòl ’s Craic @ Celtic Music Radio 95FM’ www.celticmusicradio.net feasgar Diluain aig aig 6f. Bidh Casi Dylan agus an neach-ciùil Gwen Màiri a’ toirt dhunn blasad de cheòl is cultar na Cuimrigh mar chomharrachadh air Latha an Naomh Dhaibhidh air 1 Màrt.

Bidh pàranatan is clann-sgoilearan bho Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu eòlach air Gwen Màiri mar an neach-oideachaidh clàrsaich an sin ach nuair nach eil i a’ teagaisg tha i an-sàs ann an tòrr phroiseactan ciùil inntineach eile.

Thogadh i ann an Cill Rìbhinn agus bha i na h-oileanach aig Conservatoire Rioghail na h-Alba. Bho cheumnaich i tha i air a bhith air leth trang na neach-ciùil a’cluich ann an foireannan ciùil proifeiseanta, a’ sgrìobhadh leabhraichean air ceòl na clàrsaich agus a’ teagaisg. Chuir i seachad trì miosan aig Ionad Clàrsaich Tamnak Prathom ann am Bangkok marchlàrsair air mhuinntearas.

An-diugh tha i a’ cur seachad barrachd tide air ceòl dùthchas a tha togail air an dualchas Chuimreach aice. Tha am pròiseact ciùil airson dithis, ‘Tornish’, a’ toirt cothrom dhi a bhith a’ cluich còmhla ri neach-ciùil Cuimreach eile agus ann an 2013 chaidh Gwen fhèin a thaghadh airson pàirt a ghabhail ann an 10MewnBws (10 ann am Bus) pròiseact cùil ùr annasach a thug a-steach rannsachadh is sgrùdadh, clàr agus cuairt ciùil a thug iad gu Fèis Swn agus Fès Hay far an do chuir iad taic ri Cerys Mattews. Bidh i air ceann dà chursa ciùil Fèis Chlàrsaich Dhùn Eideann agus a’ cluich le Tornish air oidhche mu dheireadh na Fèise.

Ceols craic imageCeòl ’s Craic will be welcoming two special guests from Wales to ‘Ceòl ’s Craic @ Celtic Music Radio on 95FM across Glasgow and online at www.celticmusicradio.neton Monday evening at 6pm.

Casi Dylan and musician Gwen Màiri will be giving us a taste of Welsh music and culture to mark St David’s Day on Sunday 1 March writes Iseabail Murray.

Parents and children at Glasgow Gaelic School will know Gwen Màiri as the harp tutor there but her work as a musician involves her in a variety of interesting music projects. She was brought up in St. Andrew’s in Fife and studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Music in Glasgow.

Since graduating from there she has been kept busy performing in professional orchestras and chamber groups as well as teaching and writing. She spent three months as resident harpist and teacher at the Tamnak Prathom Harp Centre in Bangkok. In recent years, Gwen’s focus has shifted towards folk music and her mixed Scottish/Welsh heritage.

Her solo projects include a duo called Tornish with a South Wales, based flute and whistle player. In 2013 she was chosen to be part of the groundbreaking Welsh project, 10MewnBws (10 in a Bus).

After a period of intensive research the group came together to write, record and tour their album. The tour included performances at Sŵn Festival and a double-bill performance with Cerys Matthews at Hay Festival.

Coming up, Gwen will be leading two courses at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival and will be performing with Tornish on the last night there.

Ceòl ’s Craic, Monday 2 March 2015 at 6.00pm and Catch Up anytime.

Winter Wilson guest on Tuesday Homeward Bound

Winter Wilson guest on Tuesday Homeward Bound

Feb 28, 2015

Winter Wilson plays Glasgow on Tuesday 3 March at Live at the Star, The Admiral Bar, 72a Waterloo Street in Glasgow city centre. Before the gig, Winter Wilson will visit Celtic Music Radio for a chat with Bill Morris on Tuesday after 5.00pm.

With six critically-acclaimed albums to their name, Winter Wilson are known across the UK acoustic music scene for their fine original songs, stunning harmonies and off-the-wall humour.

Cutting Free, their latest album, has been selected by The Daily Telegraph as one of its top folk albums of 2014, adding to the duo’s reputation as greatwinter wilson entertainers.

Kip Winter’s voice is simply one of the best in the business, delivering power and emotion in equal measure. In the past she has sung everything from jazz to opera, but is at her best and happiest when singing folk and blues.

Described by the great John as a “magnificent” songwriter, Dave Wilson is now recognised as one of the best on the English acoustic scene, with his songs covered by some of folk’s “greats” including Vin Garbutt.

Add to this a mellow, relaxed singing style and some mean guitar playing. Put these two together and you get great songs, beautifully sung and much laughter – a performance guaranteed to deliver superb entertainment.

Winter Wilson with Bill Morris, Tuesday 3 March, 5.00-6.00pm and later at Live at the Star, Admiral, 72a Waterloo Street, Glasgow G2 7DA.
