Big­gest gig yet!

Cin­na­mon’s show

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Jonathan Ged­des

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.
