His songs are generally down beat and have a …

Kimmie Rhodes 25 January 2016

I have often played Kimmie Rhodes on my Saturday morning programme, but I have never seen her performing live and I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. She opened with “Everywhere I Go” which I thought was a good choice – one of her own songs, medium tempo and of course, here she was, another …

Review: Diana Jones, The Art Club, Glasgow, 28 January 2015

I have to admit that I hadn’t heard of Diana until last year, when I came across some of her tracks in the Celtic Music Radio library and now, I’m hooked! I was part of a full house on Wednesday night, where Diana was appearing and I was so impressed by her, as was everyone in …

Review: An Evening with Jimmie Macgregor and Friends, Mackintosh Church, Glasgow – Saturday 24 January

Review: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Concert Hall, Friday 24 January 2014

Mary Chapin Carpenter’s appearance at an almost full main auditorium of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Friday 24 January did not disappoint her many fans and indeed, she got a standing ovation. Mary simply sang all the tracks from her new album “Songs From The Movies” with the 50 or so strong Scottish Symphony …

Martha Wainwright at the Concert Hall on Tuesday 29 January 2013

I had never seen Martha Wainwright perform before and when she started her first song, I must say I found her strange leg movements a bit distracting, however, I soon realised that it was intrinsic to her energetic performance and I was soon so spellbound by her lyrics and guitar playing, that I hardly noticed. …
