Listen to the usual great mix of old and new on the show.
The popular Gaberlunzie have been entertaining a loyal following for 45 years, Gordon & Robin appeal to audiences worldwide – essentially Scottish with an emphasis on rhythm and harmony. They have a unique blend of modern and traditional songs and humorous anecdotes. As singers, instrumentalists and songwriters their gift for entertainment is hard to rival in Scottish Folk Music.
Another fine act I saw this week was Sam Baker from Texas, known for his raspy, almost spoken-word vocal style. He is a fascinating guy whose songs bear all the heartache and poignancy that any decent country song should. His life defining moment came when travelling on a train in Peru a terrorist bomb exploded above his head. He lost most of his hearing and suffered serious injuries. After corrective surgery lasting over 10 years the physical, emotional and spiritual journey he experienced helped him form his quiet and passionate view of the world.
If you haven’t heard these fine acts before give them a listen this weekend – go on you know you want to !
