The Humblebums -‘Please sing a Song for us- Transatlantic Anthology – CMR’s Album of The Week 16th June 2018

Please Sing a Song for us : Transatlantic Anthology (CD released 25 May 2018 by Elephant Records) is Celtic Music Radio’s Album of The Week 16th June 2018

Billy & Tam

Billy Connolly founded the group in 1965, along with guitarist Tam Harvey; both had been regulars on the Glasgow folk circuit, and Connolly had previously been playing old-time country music in a group called the Skillet Lickers. The duo quickly became a popular attraction in Glasgow’s folk clubs, particularly as Connolly honed his humorous between-song patter, which became an increasingly large part of their already whimsical act. After a few years of local celebrity, the Humblebums recorded their debut album, First Collection of Merrie Melodies, for the Transatlantic label, employing bassist Ronnie Rae to flesh out their sound; the repertoire was split between traditional folk songs and Connolly –  Gerry Rafferty, who later scored hits with Stealers Wheel and as a solo artist, and Billy Connolly, who left music to become an internationally successful stand-up comedian

Studio Guest – Ross Ainslie & Ali Hutton – Tues 5th June – 10-Midnight with The Phat Controller – aka Iain Copeland

Listen into the Phat Controller aka Iain Copeland who has Ross Ainslie & Ali Hutton   in the studio 10 – midnight(Repeated  Sat 9 June 10- Midnight) to hear about their music – the release of Symbiosis 11 along with their organic, electronic recording and experimentation – working together rather than being ‘contrived’ – in this the second Symbiosis album!
‘The music that happens by chance lent itself to a bigger production’ !.
Listen again ! 1st Hour   2nd Hour  links

With that production, then discussed how they took the trac from the studio to live, as they did in April 2018! with their very successful ‘ Album Launch Tour’
Buy their albums from Bancamp Link

 

Also carrying on from their first album – which with tunes that had been commissioned – which artists have done for centuries to afford to get their music out there – Symbiosis 11  -lends it way to a modern type of commissioning /‘crowfunding’ instead of a ‘patron’ of yesteryear.
