Gig review

The Just Joans / Pocket Knife / Peter Johnson

Glasgow The Flying Duck (Saturday February 2020)

Now we are into February and people have been paid after that long and horrible month of January



Beerjacket & the Cairn String Quartet / Keeley Forsyth

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow CCA (Friday 31st January 2020)

It has been ages since I last saw Beerjacket. At one time Peter Kelly seemed to be everywhere and was racking up a lot of good support slots with impressive names.
