Band all ready to per­form gig

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang o u t f i t H a r r y & the Hen­der­sons are on the gig­ging trail again.

The lo­cal seven-piece will play Oran Mor in Glas­gow on Fri­day June 26, as part of the show­case gig be­ing put on by stu­dent la­bel Elec­tric Honey.

It was through the Glas­gow la­bel, run by stu­dents at Glas­gow Kelvin Col­lege, that Harry & the Hen­der­sons re­leased their first sin­gle, Give Me Proof.

Since then they’ve con­tin­ued to gig regularly, play­ing a brew of coun­try, blues and rock.

And they’re now re­turn­ing for the col­lege’s yearly show­case gig, where they’ll be joined by ex­citable In­ver­ness rock­ers Sch­narf Sch­narf, emerg­ing duo Apace Sun and singer­song­writer Finn LeMarinel.

The col­lege’s Ken McCluskey, for­merly vo­cal­ist with Glas­gow group the Blue­bells, was de­lighted to welcome Harry & the Hen­der­sons back.

He said: “They’re a re­ally good har­mony band.

“Ev­ery time I see them they seem to have picked up another mem­ber off the street but they’re do­ing well.

“When they came to us back in 2013 they were just start­ing off but we were re­ally taken by their har­monies - they were very ma­ture and a great blend of voices.

“The first EP they did was fan­tas­tic, and they’re good guys - they’re start­ing to play fur­ther afield now, go­ing to places like Ire­land, which is a big thing.

“It’s OK al­ways play­ing Sauchi­hall Street but you need to go fur­ther, and to dif­fer­ent ter­ri­to­ries if you want to progress as a band, and that’s what they’re do­ing.”

Band mem­bers in­clude singer Harry Mul­venna, a for­mer Trin­ity High pupil, acous­tic gui­tarist and vo­cal­ist Stu­art Neil, gui­tarist/ vo­cal­ist An­drew Neil, from Cathkin High, pi­anist Joss Kelly from Stonelaw and ex-Stonelaw pupil Jack Richar­son on bass.

Tick­ets for the Fri­day night gig are £5.
