Biggest gig yet!
Castlemilk singer Gerry Cinnamon has announced his biggest gig yet.
He’ll be playing the 550 capacity Oran Mor in Glasgow on Friday December 4.
His Kampfire tour looks set to cap a busy year for the troubadour, who played T In The Park in July.
Earlier this year the singer told the Reformer how growing up in Castlemilk had inspired some of his music.
He said:” It’s a crazy wee place that has seen a lot of things go down for such a small area, it’s a place that can make or break you.
“There’s no shortage of stories to draw inspiration from.
“It’s a lot quieter now, that can only be a good thing.
“Castlemilk is difficult to explain to anyone who’s not from there.
“For years it was so divided by gang fighting but it’s changed big time. There’s a genuine sense of community there that I never thought I would ever see.
“The support I’ve had personally from folk all over Castlemilk and beyond has been amazing and very humbling.
“The youth street team and the Youth Complex have done some amazing work for years and now Castlemilk Against Austerity are stepping up to the plate and engaging people with important issues that affect us all.”
Recent months have seen Gerry struggle with the possibility of being diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, but now he’s on the mend.
Now he’s planning an album for March next year, as well as his next tour.
Gerry performed in front of thousands of people at Saturday’s Hope Over Fear rally in George Square having previously shot to prominence during last year’s independence referendum campaign.
Tickets for Oran Mor are onsale now, priced at £12.
