Hi Folks, and a happy new year to everyone!
I've managed to keep my resolution...never make any NY resolutions!
Just a wee reminder of January's gig.
For those of you who have seen Robin Laing before you'll know
that this will, as usual be a great night.
For those of you who haven't, you're in for a real treat.
Some reviews:-
"One of the most thoughtful and gifted and promising voices of the Revival"
HAMISH HENDERSON
"Several of his songs have already become classics"
FOLKUS
"Robin Laing set the seal on the evening with his stylishly-penned songs of life"
EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS
"Delightful songs, as expressive of Auld Reekie as the words of the poets"
THE SCOTSMAN
"A pleasure to share in the sincerity and idealism in Robin's renditions"
THE SCOTSMAN
"Robin Laing is a quality performer, who once again produced a performance of quality"
FOLK NORTH WEST

It seems like ages since Tich Frier's visit on the 12th of August, and a grand night of song and laughter it was too! It was satisfying to find the wee man on great form and in good health, following his skirmish with the Big C.   But now, for your delectation: "COCKERSDALE" SATURDAY, 24TH SEPTEMBER 8:00 PM PENTLAND HOTEL,THURSO, SUPPORTED BY "CLAPSHOT" This is a night not to be missed, not necessarily because Clapshot are performing outside their usual haunt of the Commercial Bar, Thurso, but because we have one of England's top harmony groups making a rare appearance in Scotland.
