Busy weekend ahead
THIS coming weekend in Glasgow is giving me a bit of a headache.
Such is the multitude of incredible events, I am at a complete loss as to how to spend my Friday and Saturday nights.
Saturday night is the real headache. Seasaidh Lexy - Gaelic’s very own hilarious drag queen - is in the Mitchell Theatre; while Iain Costello MacIver is performing for Ceòl’s Craic’s annual Oidhche Americana in the Centre for Contemporary Arts.
Costello is a legend of the Gaelic music world, but Calum Mackinnon doing Seasaidh Lexy is a legend of the Gaelic comedy world.
There is also the option of going through to Edinburgh to hear the Lewis Psalm Singers in concert. I think, for many, what to attend will have to be decided on the flip of a coin.
The weekend starts early with the always enjoyable Comunn an Taobh an Iar opening ceilidh in the Ellangowan Social Club in Milngavie.
Then, on Friday night, the Donald Black Band is live in concert in the piping centre, Otago Street.
I wrote last week about Donald wishing me to describe him as a young Elvis look-alike.
He told me this week that, having read my article, he now wants to drive everywhere in a pink cadillac. It seems West Highland moothie players are a unique breed of celebrity.
