Gig review

The Close Lobsters / Domiciles

Glasgow Nice and Sleazy (Saturday 29th February 2020)

This was a good pairing, the returning heroes and the young upstarts.



Sound of Yell / Sensory Illusions

Glasgow CCA (Saturday February 15th 2020)

This was an excellent evening’s entertainment, starting with some highly eccentric and entertaining instrumentals from Bill Wells (on guitar) and Danielle Price (tuba)



The Monochrome Set / The Cathode Ray / Stoor

Glasgow Mono (Friday February 28th 2020)

This was a great triple header, so great that BM offloaded her ticket to see Sleater Kinney at the Barras that night



Anna Meredith / Callum Easter

Glasgow Oran Mor (Saturday 8 February 2020)

This was a gig originally scheduled for Glasgow Art School



Field Music

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Kelvingrove Art Gallery (Saturday 1st February 2020)

If the thought of a concept album is a scary prospect for you, think how Peter Brewis feels.



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.



Return to H’Yup – A Tribute to Ivor Cutler

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Royal Concert Hall (Wednesday 29th January 2020)

This was truly a collaborative effort.



Glorious Traces – The Music of Others

Glasgow Glad Cafe (Saturday January 25th 2020)

This was a great, laid back and special night.



Robyn Hitchcock / Annie Booth

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Drygate (Tuesday 26th January 2020)

In some ways this year’s Celtic Connections line-up isn’t as good as it has been in the past.
