Late Bloomers House Concert 6th July

The Late Bloomers are joining us in our House Concert room on Wednesday 6th July.

Performing a mix of folk, blues and bluegrass, Late Bloomers are Cathy Frank and Gerda Pickin. Singing in close harmony and playing guitar, banjo and concertina, they bring a wealth of experience and passion to their performances.

Gerda and Cathy have been singing and playing solo and in various bands for over 40 years, in concerts, festivals and folk clubs.

They formed two thirds of a trio for 12 years, but in early 2013 became the duo Late Bloomers. They have expanded their repertoire, keeping the concentration on tight arrangements and close harmony for which they are known.

Mac Ìle – The Music of Fraser Shaw – Album of The Week 3 June 2017 – Listen Again Link

Tune in on Sat 3 June at 12pm (repeated on Mondy at 7pm) to hear Liz Clark in conversation with Gráinne Brady about this beautiful album brought out by the friends and fellow artists of Fraser’s – in memory of this fine young musician who sadly passed, far too young, in May 2015, but left his music behind for us all to enjoy.
All proceeds of the tunebook go directly toward the MS Care Centre in Lochilphead , the album , via The Fraser Shaw Trust, which was set up in his memory, are used for the advancement of education, arts and culture and for the relief of those living with multiple sclerosis in Scotland, particularly on the Isle of Islay. The music is wonderful so please buy the tunebook and the album and keep Frasers music alive while helping towards MS care and for future generations of artists. To purchase album – link

                                           Photograph with kind courtesy of   Sean Purser

In loving memory of Fraser Shaw 1980-2015
In November 2015 a group of musicians gathered on Islay to play at the Islay Sessions Festival, this laying the groundwork for this album

In January 2016 at Celtic Connections this same group of musicians, “The Islay Sessioners” as they called themselves, performed this music as part of Islay Night, a concert that celebrated the music and culture of Islay, can the tunes of Fraser Shaw

Tracks chosen from album Mac Ìle – The Music of Fraser Shaw –to be played today are:-

1 Back to Islay
The Machrie
Force 10

Two Jigs writer shortly after Fraser’s move to Islay in 2012 far from the bustling scen in Glasgow, where the latest gossip was the cancelled ferries due to bad weather

5 Pipe Set
Graham Allison’s Welcome to Traditional Music
Turboshady
Angus MacKenzie’s
Arr Angus MacKenzie / Eilidh Shaw/ Ross Martin

Fraser introduced Graham of Port Charlotte Hotel on Islay to traditional music, and He’s never looked back since A “Truboshady”is a drink that could be bought in the Cammanached Bar in Portree, where Fraser worked during his time on the Isle of Skye. Fraser wrote the third tune after his friend and piping partner in crime – Angus

6 Clachan Uaine
Comp Calum MacDonald – Arr Kathleen Graham & Mhairi Hall
A beautiful Gaelic Song, once performed by Culanas,  was a favourite of Fraser’s

8 Slumberland’s
Slumberland’s
K’s

These reels were written after two different, very special people in Fraser’s life. Although the starting phrases are nearly identical, they are both in fact, very different tunes!

10 Air Chall (slow air)
Arr Innes Watson
A slow air, meaning “Lost”.  The first half was writtern for his father, after becoming ill. The second half was written a couple of years later when a friend of Graser’s went missing.  The tune is for people  lost in different ways.  Fraser recorded this tune on whistle, to be transcribed for his tunebook, later inspiring this string arrangement.  His original recording was used for this trac.

Trac 12 The C-Side
Arr The Islay Sessioners
The C- Side was a Southside flat in Glasgow, a hub for support, music and friendship where Fraser lived for three year
