All musicians have their own pedigree but it such a joy to hear this new combination.

They have been in recording some of their own songs and have been covering some Dylan, Gillian Welsh and Muddy Waters.

The band will be playing St Louis Café on November 23 at 734 Dumbarton Road at Thornwood, roundabout, Thornwood, Partick, Glasgow G11.  Hopefully we will see you all there.

Mischa Nic a’ Phearsain gu stiùideo Celtic Music Radio airson seisean

Mischa Nic a’ Phearsain gu stiùideo Celtic Music Radio airson seisean

Nov 16, 2014

Tha Ceòl ’s Craic air leth toilichte a bhith a’ cur fàilte air Mischa Nic a’ Phearsain gu stiùideo Celtic Music Radio airson seisean ciùil beò air program rèidio na seachdain seo.

‘S e seinneadair Gàidhlig air leth tàlantach a th’ ann am Mischa – mar sin chan eil e na iongnadh gu bheil i air a’ gheàrr liosta anns an raon ‘Seinneadair Gàidhlig na Bliadhna’ ann an Duaisean Ceòl Traidiseanta Albannach MG ALBA 2014.

Dùnaidh a’ bhòt phoblach air Dihaoine 28 Samhain agus thèid na duaisean a thoirt seachad aig cuirm mhòr oidhche na Trads ann an Inbhir Nis air Disathairne 13 an Dùbhlachd.

Airson bhòtadh chan eil agaibh ach ri dhol gu  Tha Mischa gu math àiridh air gach duais a thèid a bhuileachadh oirre – mar a chluinneas sinn nuair a ghabhas i òran no dhà air a’ phrògram Diluain eadar 6 is 7f.

Cuideachd air aoigheachd bidh sàr-sheinneadair eile. Bidh Alasdair MacIlleBhàin a’ taghadh nan clàran as fheàrr leis agus ag innse dhuinn beagan mu dheidhinn obair mar acadaimaigeach, neach-oideachaidh agus neach-ciùil. Bidh am program a’ dol a-mach beò ann an Glaschu air 95FM agus air feadh an t-saoghail air

Alasdair Whyte 11114

Ceòl ’s Craic will be welcoming Mischa MacPherson to the Celtic Music Radio studio for a live music session on this week’s programme on Monday 17 November at 6.00pm.

Mischa is an exceptionally talented Gaelic singer – so it’s no surprise that she is on the short list for the Gaelic Singer of the year category in the MG ALBA Traditonal Music Awards for 2014.

The vote will close on Friday 28 November and the results will be announced at the prestigious MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards ceremony in Inverness on Saturday 13 December 2014.

To vote just go to: We wish Mischa the best of luck in this year’s competition and look forward to hearing her perform a few Gaelic songs just for us between 6.00 and 7.00pm on Monday.

Also guesting on this week’s show will be another very gifted Gaelic singer. Alasdair Whyte (pictured left on stage on the CCA on 1 November) will be sharing some of his favourite music tracks and telling us about his busy life as a Gaelic musician, lecturer and academic. The programme will be broadcast live in Glasgow on 95FM and online and all mobile devices.

Ceòl ’s Craic, Monday 17 November, 6.00-7.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
