Studio Guest – Lori McTear (8pm) and Pauline Alexander (9pm)– Fri 29th Sept on ‘Thank Folk It’s Friday’ with Ross Macfadyen 8-10 (lucky man!)
Glasgow singer Songwriter Lori McTear while at Bannerman High School pupil took up playing the guitar when she was 14, and started writing her own songs almost immediately, being taught at the Bridge in Easterhouse. Now her folk and country-tinged style is earning praise from all who hear it, and she’s already being tipped to follow in the footsteps of Scottish songstresses such as Amy Macdonald and KT Tunstall.
But it was that first live performance in George Square at the tender age of 15 that really gave this young singer songwriter the musical calling! She was hooked and has continued to captivate audiences where ever she performs.
